Setting up email
Aug 15th, 2013 at 8:10pm
Hi, guys.

I'm setting up for the first time. I'm trying to configure the email settings, but the test button stays grayed out no matter what I try, and I can't save the configuration.

What is the usual process to configure default email settings?

First I suggest you to install the v4.7 beta instead. Its email component is completely rewritten and v4.7 will be released soon - see

To enable the test button, make sure all relevant fields have values:
- smtp server
- port
- authentication method
- userid/password
- sender email address
