Umbraco is not sending emails? Fix the configuration
If your website is not sending the message correctly, you should check:
- Email settings in umbracoSettings.config
- SMTP settings in web.config
Find <notifications> section in configumbracoSettings.config file:
<notifications> <!-- the email that should be used as from mail when umbraco sends a notification --> <!-- you can add a display name to the email like this: <email>Your display name here <email@example.com></email> --> <email>firstname.lastname@example.org</email> </notifications>
Set mail settings configuration in web.config file properly
<system.net> <mailSettings> <smtp from="email@example.com"> <network port="[PORT]" host="[HOST]" userName="firstname.lastname@example.org" password="[PASSWORD]" /> </smtp> </mailSettings> </system.net>
Once email settings are well configured, you should get an email to your inbox.
