Re: Alfresco community 6.2 docker outbound email configuration

You can add following properties in docker-compose for alfresco service. Check the docs here : https://docs.alfresco.com/content-services/latest/config/email/

 

 -Dmail.host=smtphost
 -Dmail.port=25
 -Dmail.username=anonymous
 -Dmail.password=
 -Dmail.protocol=smtp
 -Dmail.smtps.starttls.enable=false
 -Dmail.smtps.auth=false

SAMPLE DOCKER COMPOSE: https://github.com/abhinavmishra14/change-acs-share-port-demo/blob/master/docker-compose-v3.yml#L47

Make sure host and port is accessible and open to use 

Additionally, if you are maintaining the properties in alfresco-global.properties then you can add the above properties in there as well. You need to make sure the global properties is copied everytime you restart the containers, anychanges made to global properties on container level may be lost on restart and relaunch. 

You can make use of DockerFile and docker-compose in combination to copy the global properties file when image is build and container is launched. 

Sample use :

https://github.com/abhinavmishra14/change-acs-share-port-demo/blob/master/docker-compose-v3.yml#L9

https://github.com/abhinavmishra14/change-acs-share-port-demo/blob/master/configs-to-override/alfres...

https://github.com/abhinavmishra14/change-acs-share-port-demo/blob/master/configs-to-override/alfres...

You can also use this tool to generate a docker-compose with smtp configs, or at least take reference from the generated docker compose file:

Re: Alfresco community 6.2 docker outbound email configuration

Hi @marcosfgo25 

Have you tried the following:

 

-Dmail.protocol=smtps
-Dmail.smtps.starttls.enable=true
-Dmail.smtps.auth=true

In the documentation it suggests the following config for Gmail:

 

# Sample Gmail settings
mail.host=smtp.gmail.com
mail.port=465
mail.username=user@gmail.com
mail.password=password
mail.protocol=smtps
mail.smtps.starttls.enable=true
mail.smtps.auth=true

Re: Alfresco community 6.2 docker outbound email configuration

as @EddieMay  mentioned and documented here: https://docs.alfresco.com/content-services/community/config/email/

the below config works fine. Make sure you have enabled less secure apps settings in your gmail: https://help.dreamhost.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001719551-Troubleshooting-GMAIL-SMTP-authentication-...

mail.host=smtp.gmail.com
mail.port=465
mail.username=xyz@gmail.com
mail.password=pass123
mail.protocol=smtps
mail.smtps.starttls.enable=true
mail.smtps.auth=true

In docker compose the config looks like:

I see, but this error:

Indicates that, it can't connect to gmail SMTP server. It could be due to your server blocking the connection or server doesn't have connectivity enabled for public internet. May be check this one
