How do we set up email after install?

My mail server went down, and would like to migrate to mailgun.org. I need to somehow connect the site to smtp.mailgun.org so that site emails work.

Can I configure this in my discourse instance settings pages? Or would that be the mail stuff in app.yml?

This needs to be changed in app.yml.
Remember to run ./launcher rebuild app afterwards, which will cause about 10 minutes of downtime.

It’s actually between 2 and 8 10 minutes depending on the CPU and disk speed. 8 minutes on an average DO droplet.

For the hell of it I timed my last Digital Ocean (LON1 droplet) rebuild time and got 9 minutes 49 seconds.
