Gmail discourse new install


(Jay Patel) #1

Hi all,

Just installed App droplet on digital ocean. but when i registered with gmail id its not sending me any reply to admin email. is there some specific configuration i need to make.

Email used : user@gmail.com
smtp : smtp.gmail.com
port: tried both 465 and 587

and have google less secure app allowed. Or can i turn on email on droplet it self like user@domain.com?

Thanks.

Using Gmail for outgoing mail is not recommended. You should use mailgun or sparkpost.
