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.
: Google Cloud Platform doesn’t allow SMTP traffic through port 25. Check Google cloud documentation to learn how to use a different port for sending emails from your application.
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_host: smtp.example.com mailer_port: 587 mailer_encryption: tls mailer_user: firstname.lastname@example.org mailer_password: password
To configure the application to use other third-party SMTP services for outgoing email, such as SendGrid, refer to the FAQ.
