For docker installs you should update SMTP details in /var/discourse/containers/app.yml file and run rebuild through SSH

Check below for more details

I have a basic question here, why should one have a rebuild the entire setup just to update the SMTP username/password? Isn’t that something discourse can pull on the fly by just updating the file?

No, the file is used during the build process for the container. It’s not touched at runtime.

Thanks, I get that I was referring to is there a more direct way to update the username/password in a file or through the GUI? (like the POP3 eMail settings) If not, shouldn’t there be one rather having to rebuild the setup?
