Join Sandra Toner for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring mail, part of Installing and Administering Atlassian Confluence.
- In this video, we'll configure the Confluence server to send email. This will allow the user community to send notifications, email pages, and receive updates on content changes. From the Configuration panel, we will select Mail Servers. We'll need to add a new SMTP server. If there are any current servers available, they'll be listed here, and should be available for edit. To create the mail server, we'll need to fill out a Name, a From Address, a From Name, and a Subject Prefix.
SMTP Server is the default name given, but you can change that if you want. The address you enter here, is what is shown in the From field of an email. To display the current user's email address, enter a curly bracket, with the variable "Email." You'll do the same in the From Name text field. Enter a pair of curly brackets, with the variable "Full Name." The Subject Prefix will appear in the Subject Line of the email. You can change this to display anything you'd like to appear in that Subject Line.
Next, we need to enter the Server Hostname information. Your new mail server will appear in the Mail Server's list. In the far, right-hand column, called Operations, you'll see an option to send a test email. This will allow you to test whether or not the setup was completed correctly. Now that we've configured a mail server, let's take a look at character in coding.
