I have the issue with configure the email with kobotoolbox

I have the issue with configure the email with kobotoolbox.

I have installed the docker version of kobotoolbox on my ubuntu server and application works ok, but does not send the email to user to reset the password when user forgot the password.

I configured the SMTP file similar to this:

SMTP set-up onfigurations:

EMAIL_HOST=mail.privateemail.com

EMAIL_PORT=587

EMAIL_HOST_USER=youremailaddress

EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD=youremailpassword

EMAIL_USE_TLS=True

DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL=youremailaddress

And I can send email from telnet from the server, but kobotoolbox would send the email.

I ran out of ideas. Please help.

what provider are you using ?

I am using Microsoft Office365.

maybe try to use port 25? also did you check your smtp configuration in kobo-deployment/envfiles/smtp.txt ?

I only put the email configuration into this file. Where else the email configuration should be? I think I am missing something. Thank you for looking into it.

you should configure the smtp setting from kobo-install by running: python3 run.py --setup

I think there was wrong info used during the installation. Is there a way to update email configuration info?

yes you need to go through the python3 run.py --setup and update your info there, if you cant just when the setup start choose to install kobo in another directory or delete the unwated one.
