Email Configuration


I am trying to get FreePBX2.9/Asterisk 1.8/Centos to send out emails (eg. fax attachments) and I can’t find where I can configure the smtp, account names, password, port number (we need to use 587).

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thank you!

Thank you both for your guidance.
I now understand that you must configure the email functionality independently from the asterisk configuration.
I installed webmin and dovecot (sendmail already installed) to make the configurations easier.

FreePBX uses whatever mail forwarder you have configured on your Linux (or other OS).

Check out this link from the PBX in a Flash forum:
