How do I configure the mail server?

This can be configured by your Database Administrator (DBA), or someone with access to make changes directly on the server.

If that describes you, here are the instructions to modify this value:

  1. Locate your web.config file (located in the root folder)
  2. Search for the string mailSettings. The matching element should look something like this:
    <mailSettings>
    <smtp from="SMTP_EMAIL">
    <network host="smtp-mail.outlook.com" port="587" enableSsl="true" password="SMTP_PASSWORD" userName="SMTP_USERNAME" />
    </smtp>
    </mailSettings>
  3. Replace the placeholder text SMTP_EMAIL, SMTP_PASSWORD, and SMTP_USERNAME with the values from your email server
  4. It may also be necessary to replace the host and port values, but only do so if you are confident in the changes you are making.
