Changing SMTP settings for Community Server

Recently you've started using a Community Server version and now your portal activity is running at full tilt. Of course you want to keep in line with what is going on on your portal. ONLYOFFICE notifications don't let you miss a thing! But if you want to ensure more efficient functioning of ONLYOFFICE notifications you need to set up the SMPT settings.

Do you get lost in numerous fields you need to fill out? Don't know where to start? Read this article and you will learn how to change SMTP settings for ONLYOFFICE server!

Bare Bones Instructions

  1. Go to the Settings section. To do that click the Settings Icon icon in the right upper corner.
  2. Switch to the Integration tab.
  3. Open the SMTP Settings page.
  4. In the SMTP Settings section fill out the necessary fields (you can get specific settings from your email service provider or see some examples below):
    • in the Host field, introduce your SMTP server host name, such as smtp.domain.com,
    • specify the Port number used by the SMTP server and check the Authentication box,
    • fill out the Host Login and Host Password fields,
      Host login is your email box address for the email server you change the SMTP settings for. Host Password is the password you use to access the corresponding email box. Make sure that your email address and password are valid.
    • introduce any name you want in the Sender Display Name field,
    • specify the corresponding email address in the Sender Email Address field (it must comply with the one specified in the Host Login field).
  5. Check the Enable SSL box or leave it unchecked (the SSL activation depends on the port number).
  6. Verify that all the fields are filled out correctly and click the Save button.

That's not the end yet. To apply the changes you've made, please, restart the application pool on your computer . To do that:

  1. Click the Start button and in the opened window choose the Control Panel.
  2. Go to the Administrative Tools and choose the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager.
  3. Press the Open button in the 'Security warning' window.
  4. Double click the user name, then click the Application pools caption.
  5. Find the ONLYOFFICE Server item in the opened window and click it.
  6. Click the Stop link and right after that the Start link on the right panel.
  7. Reload the ONLYOFFICE page in your browser if it's open.
To make sure that SMPT settings are configurated correctly, create, for example, a new task/user and check out if the notification/invitation letter is delivered to the specified email address.
