Install issues with docker-compose


I tried to install discourse with docker compose file, using AWS SES as SMTP server, but the emails are not working. I am sure the credentials and overall config is valid, I think there might be an issue with the default email from address. I don’t have access to app.yml with this installation method so can’t edit it. Is there a way to change he default from address installing the discourse with bitnami and docker compose?

I’m pretty sure that won’t work, as you seem to have demonstrated. See bitnami.

But you might try setting DISCOURSE_NOTIFICATION_EMAIL with the email address that your mail server will allow you to send from.

If this fails, would you suggest verifying email that discourse expects? The

That’s what Discourse defaults to. But it’s what your mail server expects that is at issue.
