Configuration for email notifications

In order to have Easy Redmine send notifications about new tasks, task updates and all other selected events, you need to connect the application to a mail server.

Email configuration settings can be found in the file configuration.yml ([redmine root]/config/configuration.yml). After making any changes in this configuration file, you will need to restart the application server for them to take effect. Test whether your configuration is correct in the application - Adminsitration >> Settings >> Email notifications - Send a test email.

# Outgoing email settings

production:
  email_delivery:
    delivery_method: :smtp
    smtp_settings:
      address: smtp.example.net
      port: 25
      domain: example.net
      authentication: :login
      user_name: easyredmine@example.net
      password: easyredmine

development:
  email_delivery:
    delivery_method: :smtp
    smtp_settings:
      address: 127.0.0.1
      port: 25
      domain: example.net
      authentication: :login
      user_name: easyredmine@example.net

If you want to use GMail/Google Apps and other TLS-requiring SMTP servers, you'll have to add some TLS-related settings :

production:
  email_delivery:
    delivery_method: :smtp
    smtp_settings:
      enable_starttls_auto: true
      address: "smtp.gmail.com" 
      port: '587'
      domain: "smtp.gmail.com" 
      authentication: :plain
      user_name: "your_email@gmail.com" 
      password: "your_password" 

 

Here is an example for Office 365 users (Exchange online). The sender must have an account, or if you want to send from a shared mailbox, the account below must have authorization to "Send As" the sender which is defined in Redmine email notifications settings.

production:
  email_delivery:
    delivery_method: :smtp
    smtp_settings:
      enable_starttls_auto: true
      address: "smtp.office365.com" 
      port: '587'
      domain: "your_domain.com" 
      authentication: :login
      user_name: "email@your_domain.com" 
      password: "password" 

 

No Authentication

Example for an SMTP service provider with no authentication.

production:
  email_delivery:
    delivery_method: :smtp
    smtp_settings:
      address: smtp.knology.net
      port: 25
      domain: cybersprocket.com

 

Using sendmail command

Example for a unix system that uses the /usr/sbin/sendmail command.
