Email Configuration in Alfresco 5.2.f

Jump to solution

How do set email configurations for alfresco 5.2.f? I tried setting up inbound and outbound setting provided in the documents. I am using gmail to test them out. Can someone clearly mention the steps required to send and receive mails?

I cracked it myself, documentation in the alfresco is perfect, we need to change some settings in the google so that it allows to send emails.

Check out Alfresco docs for outbound config, gmail is one of the examples:

The docs for both inbound and outbound are pretty clear and there are a number of videos and posts around the net that also explain it. Rather than ask us to duplicate those steps here, maybe you could say where you are stuck, what error messages you are seeing, or what you are having trouble with?

I have created an outbound smtp configuration and created a new site and added assigned the user to it, which should trigger the mail to the user inviting him to the site.

Following are the properties which i have set.

### E-mail site invitation setting ###
notification.email.siteinvite=true

# Sample Gmail settings
mail.host=smtp.gmail.com
mail.port=587
mail.username=rahuld9021@gmail.com
mail.password=********
mail.protocol=smtps
mail.smtps.starttls.enable=true
mail.smtps.auth=true
