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:
From name: My Name
SMTP Authentication: Yes
SMTP Security: TLS
SMTP Port: 587
SMTP Username:
SMTP Host:

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.
