Test SMTP (Email Settings)

  • Test SMTP (Email Settings)
  • What is the best way to test my SMTP (Email Settings)?  It would be nice if there was a "Send Test Email" button for the SMTP (Email Settings) like there is for the Email Campaigns SMTP Settings.

    Thanks,
    Al
  • Hi,
    There is one in Administration, it's for Email Campaigns but it send an empty one to a choosen mail adress.

  • Hello guys,

    As @Nicolas properly pointed out, you can test your SMTP settings navigating to Administration -> Settings -> Email Campaigns and enter a test email address.

  • I know there is a feature to test the SMTP Settings for Email Campaigns.  My understanding is that the SMTP Settings for Email Campaigns is only used for Email Campaigns.  By the way, the test works great.

    My question is regarding a test for the SMTP (Email Settings).  This is found at Administration -> Advanced -> System -> SMTP (Email Settings).  I have the same setting here that I do for the Email Campaigns.  However, there is not a test button like there is for the Email Campaigns.

    My understanding is that Sitefinity uses the SMTP (Email Settings) for any email generated except for the Email Campaigns.  I'm trying to send an Activation email as part of the Registration widget, but the email is not sending.  I wanted to confirm the SMTP settings worked.

    If there is another way to debug why my Activation email is not working that would be also be helpful.

    Thanks,

  • Hi Al,

    As you properly pointed out, the test message verifies that you configured your Email campaign SMTP settings properly. There's no such test message option in the Advanced  settings. However, the same configurations you've set to the Email campaigns settings, should work when you set them through the Advanced settings. I've tested the Registration widget and was able to send a confirmation email without any problems. Take a look at this article from our documentation and make sure that you're not missing a setting.

    All the best,

  • Hi Jen,

    I am on Sitefinity 9.2

    Is there such a test for email settings in 9.2? I can't find any.
