I’ve been struggling with settings up SMTP to work, I really hope someone can help me out with my sccenario. So let’s say that my discourse forum is located at
discourseaddress.com and my mail is at
mailserver.com. The discourse is on a Google Cloud VM, the Mail server is on a different host (It’s just a simple webhost with cPanel)
My Settings are the following:
Hostname: discourseaddress.com Email: firstname.lastname@example.org SMTP address: mailserver.com SMTP port: 26 SMTP username: email@example.com SMTP password: mailpassword
With these settings, I get an error that my host name does not match the certificate, and mails do not get delivered.
If i use DISCOURSE_SMTP_OPENSSL_VERIFY_MODE: none, mails do get delivered, but I don’t think that it’s secure? (I get 10/10 on mailtester.com tho with this setting)
If someone can give me some feedback about this, I would really appreciate it.
