Setting Mail Parameters
For jobs that send emails, you need to configure the SMTP address and port of the mail server as well as the SMTP credentials.
FlowForce will first attempt to establish a connection encrypted over TLS or SSL. If the encrypted connection fails, FlowForce attempts to start communication without encryption and then might switch the connection to encrypted if the SMTP server explicitly requires it. Otherwise, the SMTP connection remains in plain text.
Parameters for system function /system/mail/send
To configure the mail settings, take the steps below:
1.Log on to the FlowForce Web administration interface.
2.Click Administration | Settings.
3.Enter the name and port of the SMTP Server. Standard SMTP servers accept connections on port 25. SMTP servers that require connection to be encrypted over the SSL/TLS protocol accept connections on other ports (typically, 465 or 587).
4.If your SMTP server requires authentication, click the plus icon next to the User authentication parameter and enter the username and password.
5.Optionally, enter a RFC2822–compliant mailbox address value in the Default sender field. The value entered here is used as the default From parameter of the /system/mail/send and /system/mail/send-mime functions.
To send a test email, click the Test SMTP Parameters button and fill in the From and To parameters. You can test SMTP parameters without saving the settings. You must close the Test SMTP Parameters section before saving the settings.
