Configure SCS to use SMTP for sending emails

In last week, I received nearly 10 queries from users to configure SCS to use SMTP to send emails. It is very simple and straight-forward configuration and requires restart of SCS

Open or Create  ‘mailer’ section in SCS and configure the following values

  • smtp_host: host name of the SMTP Server
  • smpt_port: port number of the SMTP Server
  • smtp_from: From email address

Any changes to smtp_host and smtp_port requires SCS restart for changes to take effect.  Changes to smtp_from effects immediately and no restart required.
