Configure SMTP for outbound emails
Configure the email settings using the “Global Configuration -> Server” menu. You can use “SMTP” as the mailer and configure it with your email server provider. Here is an example using Gmail. Replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with your Gmail account username and password respectively.
Mailer: SMTP From email: USERNAME@gmail.com From name: My Name SMTP Authentication: Yes SMTP Security: TLS SMTP Port: 587 SMTP Username: USERNAME@gmail.com SMTP Password: PASSWORD SMTP Host: smtp.gmail.com
To configure the application to use other third-party SMTP services for outgoing email, such as SendGrid or Mandrill, 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 How to troubleshoot Gmail SMTP issues to learn the causes of these issues and how to solve them.
