We installed Discourse on Google cloud platform. We are in the process of setting up the forums. Emails are not being sent out, below are the current settings. Please advice if we need to change them.

Delivery Method
address localhost
port 25
domain localhost.localdomain

authentication
enable_starttls_auto true

There are a bunch of things that can go wrong between what you say your settings are and what’s in app.yml.

Did you install a local mail server? If so, you can look in your logs and see what’s happening. If not, there’s no chance that will work.

Did you follow the INSTALL-cloud instructions?
