Configuring SMTP
Cobrowse supports configuring a custom SMTP server to replace the default email provider. This will allow you to use your company email to send the magic link login emails.

Configuring SMTP

  1. 1.
    Firstly make sure you have configured at least one superuser in your instance.
  2. 2.
    Open /admin/configuration on your instance while logged in as a superuser. e.g. https://example.com/admin/configuration
  3. 3.
    Enter a new configuration key called "smtp_url". The value should be the URL of your SMTP server including any authentiation or non-standard ports.
Example SMTP URLs
A standard SMTP URL has the format smtps://username:[email protected]
If your mail server does not require authentication, you can omit the username:password fields, e.g.smtps://smtp.example.com
If your mail server does not require a TLS connection, use can use the smtp:// protocol in the URL instead, e.g. smtp://smtp.example.com
If your mail server uses a non-standard port you can specficy that via the URL, e.g. smtp://smtp.example.com:12345
