Setting up outgoing email

moodleBy default Moodle isn't configured to send emails. This article describes how to use SMTP with gmail.


Outgoing mail configuration

Start by logging on with an admin account.

  1. Go to Site administration > Server > Email > Outgoing mail configuration.
  2. Edit the following fields:
    1. SMTP hosts (e.g. smtp.gmail.com:465).
    2. SMTP security choose SSL.
    3. SMTP Auth Type leave the default of LOGIN.
    4. SMTP username (e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
    5. SMTP password
    6. No-reply address (e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
  3. You can leave all other settings at their default.

Emails should now flow from your Moodle website, as needed.
