Unable to send confirmation email from google compute engine


(Fouad Farah) #1

Hello,

I followed the instructions posted on github to install Discourse.

I’ve been stuck at the email confirmation step. I have a sendgrid account.
here’s my setup

  DISCOURSE_SMTP_ADDRESS: smtp.sendgrid.net
  DISCOURSE_SMTP_PORT: 587
  DISCOURSE_SMTP_USER_NAME: apikey
  DISCOURSE_SMTP_PASSWORD: "<apikey>"
  DISCOURSE_SMTP_ENABLE_START_TLS: false           # (optional, default true)

I tested sendgrid via nodejs earlier on a separate instance and it does work.

Why am I not receiving any email?
