I’m sorry to ask yet another question, I’m doing my best to solve this myself, as I know beginner questions can be annoying (I’ve been reading through this excellent page here Troubleshooting email on a new Discourse install) but no matter what I try I don’t receive an email to set up the admin account
I’m not receiving the confirmation email when setting up. I must have made a mistake when setting up my email, but for the life of me I can’t figure out what it is. Perhaps something to do with the domain vs subdomain with my mail provider.
I’ve set up firstname.lastname@example.org with my domain name company, forwarding it to my usual email account, and have put these details into Spark Post.
I receive standard emails sent to email@example.com, so the forwarding address itself works.
Have configured Spark Post as set out in the instructions, and then entered it all into the app.yml file:
## TODO: List of comma delimited emails that will be made admin and developer ## on initial signup example 'firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com' DISCOURSE_DEVELOPER_EMAILS: 'firstname.lastname@example.org' ## TODO: The SMTP mail server used to validate new accounts and send notifications DISCOURSE_SMTP_ADDRESS: smtp.sparkpostmail.com DISCOURSE_SMTP_PORT: 587 DISCOURSE_SMTP_USER_NAME: SMTP_Injection DISCOURSE_SMTP_PASSWORD: b625 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #DISCOURSE_SMTP_ENABLE_START_TLS: true # (optional, default true)
And in Spark Post SMTP Relay settings on their site:
Use the information below to configure your SMTP client to relay via SparkPost.
You need an API key to use as a password when filling out the information.
**Port:**587 (Alternative Port: 2525)
Password: b625 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

It’s doing my head in haha hoping you’ll be able to help a learner like myself out
