Can I use a Gmail address to send notifications?


#1

Hi,

I’m starting to use Wekan on a Symology NAS and I am wondering if I can use a gmail address to send notifications and addresses verifications. And if so what should I use as parameters ?
I have setup the two environment variables MAIL_FROM and MAIL_URL to :
MAIL_FROM = user@gmail.com
MAIL_URL = smtp://user:password@smtp.gmail.com:587
Or can I do it through the administration panel ?

Thanks,

Anatole.

I think Gmail has stricter limits on email sending and authentication, it does not work.

Try some SMTP providers listed here:

I currently use SendGrid free account for Sandstorm, probably it could work for standalone Wekan too.
