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.

Go to the “Configure” section of the administration panel and click the “Advanced Parameters -> E-mail” section. Select the option to “set my own SMTP parameters” to allow the application to send emails.

Below is a sample configuration using a Gmail account. Replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your Gmail account username and password respectively.

Mail domain name: SERVER-IP
SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
SMTP user: USERNAME@gmail.com
SMTP password: PASSWORD
Encryption: SSL
Port: 465

It is possible to test the configuration on the same page.

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

NOTE: If you are using Gmail as the outbound email server and have experienced issues trying to send emails correctly, check the Gmail SMTP troubleshooting page to learn the causes of these issues and how to solve them.
