Connect External Email Service for Notifications

Hey there… I just installed Hestia CP. First impressions. It looks very powerful and flexible.

While installing, I didn’t install any of the email related packages.

Is it now possible to connect an external email service (say, SES) for all transactional / service related emails? For instance, password resets, backup email notifications, etc.

Hi @ravichpr,

You can use command v-add-sys-smtp

v-add-sys-smtp DOMAIN PORT SMTP_SECURITY USERNAME PASSWORD EMAIL

Example:

v-add-sys-smtp example.com 587 STARTTLS [email protected] securepassword [email protected]

Perfect. Thanks

Two quick questions:

ONE:
And will this also work if I have to use a @gmail.com address? How will the syntax change then?

TWO:
if I have to use AWS SES, will it look like this?

v-add-sys-smtp send.example.com 587 STARTTLS <AWS Access Key ID> <AWS Access Key Password> [email protected]
