#8680 My app in Communishift needs to send emails
Closed: Will Not/Can Not fix 2 years ago by kevin. Opened 2 years ago by abompard.

Describe what you would like us to do:

I have an app in Communishift (securitas) that can send an email when a user has forgotten their password. But I don't know which SMTP server to use when the app is running in Communishift.
Any suggestion?

Thanks!


So, we don't have any smtp server for communishift.

So, I would say just send out the email yourself... We could allow it access to bastion, but not sure whats a good idea. :(

we should probably allow for sending emails using a service like twilio sendgrid or one of the AWS services (which also support sending emails via an API). I made a personal twilio sendgrid account (free) and have used the API via curl to send emails.

Thanks for the tip @dustymabe , I've setup a sendgrid accound and it works like a charm :-)

Glad I could help.
