Configure email smtp

(Nicolas Echeverry) #1

Hi, just I installed Discourse in a vps of digitalocean but really do not know how to set up a smtp.

My question is: digitalocean provides a smtp?
free smtp which recommend?
google’s SMTP can work?

I have a SMTP, but does not work

Please help me

PD: the password in app.yml is in double-quote: like this —> smtp_password “password”

While gmail will work, it is not recommended by the Discourse Team. Additionally, you will receive notification in the admin panel should you choose this approach.

As far as if DOcean provides smtp, I can’t say as I haven’t used them.

See the official install docs, we recommend email providers there. Just click through.
