Configure SMTP for outbound emails
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: localhost 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.
