Configure Email / SMTP Server or SENDGRID


(Ian Arman) #1

Hello,

I’m wondering about the Email setup.

Does FreePBX support connecting to an external email server?
I can use my SMTP Server (https://mailinabox.email/) - hopefully - if Asterisk permits external server settings.

I’m wondering if it also supports SENDGRID - which would be nice.

I’d prefer not to use the internal email server - although if that’s the recommended option - that’s fine as well.

It uses the local mail system, which can be configured to relay.

If you have postfix installed: https://sendgrid.com/docs/for-developers/sending-email/postfix/

Sendmail: https://sendgrid.com/docs/for-developers/sending-email/sendmail/

ssmtp: https://sendgrid.com/docs/for-developers/sending-email/ssmtp/
