Email configuration for sending email by mail task?

Jump to solution

I found that by placing email properties in engine.properties file

engine.email.enabled=true
engine.email.host=smtp.gmail.com
engine.email.port=465
engine.email.useCredentials=true
engine.email.username=***@gmail.com
engine.email.password=***
engine.email.ssl=true
engine.email.tls=true

and while I am starting a process to sent a mail I am getting error Could not send e-mail in execution 1705

SEVERE: Terminal error:

That's a big list of properties! For valid properties please refer Email Server configuration | Alfresco Documentation 

A working email config from my computer looks like this

#
# EMAIL
#
email.enabled=true
email.host=smtp.gmail.com
email.port=587

email.tls=true
email.useCredentials=true
email.username=mygmail@gmail.com
email.password=mygmailpw

# The base url that will be used to create urls in emails.
email.base.url=http://localhost:8888

email.from.default=no-reply@activiti.alfresco.com
email.from.default.name=Activiti
email.feedback.default=aps@alfresco.com
