E-Mail Settings

  • Send e-mails for review requests and reviews:

    If enabled, e-mails will be sent out whenever a review request is posted or updated, or when reviews and replies are posted.

    See E-Mail and Review Groups for more information.

  • Send e-mails when new users register an account:

    If enabled, e-mails will be sent to the administrator every time a new user signs up to the site. This is useful for open source projects that are interested in new user signups.

  • Sender e-mail address:

    The e-mail address all e-mails are sent from. The Sender e-mail header will be used to make e-mails appear to come from the user causing the e-mail to be sent. By using the Sender header for this instead of From, there’s less risk that e-mail clients will consider the e-mails to be malicious or spam. This may require a proper DKIM setup.

    This defaults to noreply@<servername>.

  • Mail Server:

    The SMTP mail server used for outgoing e-mails. This defaults to localhost.

  • Port:

    The SMTP mail server port. This defaults to 25.

  • Username:

    The username needed to connect to the outgoing SMTP mail server, if any. This is optional and depends on the mail server configuration.

  • Password:

    The password needed to connect to the outgoing SMTP mail server, if any. This is optional and depends on the mail server configuration.

  • Use TLS for authentication:

    If enabled, TLS is used for mail server authentication. This is more secure, but requires TLS support on the mail server.
