Configure SMTP for outbound emails

Google Cloud Platform doesn’t allow SMTP traffic through default ports: 25, 465, 587. Check Google cloud documentation to learn how to use a VPN to bypass these restrictions or use a different port for sending emails from your application.

Configure the email settings by editing the /opt/bitnami/apps/akeneo/htdocs/app/config/parameters.yml file. For example, to configure a Gmail account, you could use the settings below. Replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your Gmail account username and password respectively.

mailer_transport: smtp
mailer_password: PASSWORD
mailer_port: 587
mailer_encryption: tls

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