Configure SMTP for outbound emails

NOTE: We are in the process of modifying the file structure and configuration for many Bitnami stacks. On account of these changes, the file paths stated in this guide may change depending on whether your Bitnami stack uses native Linux system packages (Approach A), or if it is a self-contained installation (Approach B). To identify your Bitnami installation type and what approach to follow, run the command below:

 $ test ! -f "/opt/bitnami/common/bin/openssl" && echo "Approach A: Using system packages." || echo "Approach B: Self-contained installation."

The output of the command indicates which approach (A or B) is used by the installation, and will allow you to identify the paths, configuration and commands to use in this guide. Refer to the FAQ for more information on these changes.

You can configure the email settings in the parameters.yml configuration file of the OroCRM installation. You have to configure it with your email server provider.

NOTE: Depending on your installation type, the parameters.yml configuration file of the OroCRM installation can be found at the following locations:

  • Approach A (Bitnami installations using system packages): /opt/bitnami/orocrm/config/parameters.yml
  • Approach B (Self-contained Bitnami installations): /opt/bitnami/apps/orocrm/htdocs/config/parameters.yml
mailer_transport: smtp
mailer_port: 587
mailer_encryption: tls
mailer_password: password

To configure the application to use other third-party SMTP services for outgoing email, such as SendGrid, refer to the FAQ.
