Configure SMTP for outbound emails

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

Configure the email settings by editing the installdir/apps/akeneo/htdocs/.env 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_URL="smtp://smtp.gmail.com:587?encryption=tls&auth_mode=login&username=USERNAME@gmail.com&password=PASSWORD&sender_address=user@example.com"

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