Hi @MutedJam and thank you for the answer.
It is, but I believe I have configured my n8n instance accordingly, to actually use port 25.
Here is a excerpt from my
docker-compose.yaml, from the environment section:
And here is the corresponding printout from the environment from inside of my container:
Does it look correct, if my intention is indeed to use port 25?
Also, should setting
N8N_SMTP_SSL=false be enough if I want to use uencrypted traffic over to 25?
Somewhere down the discussion it has been suggested, that
so I guess it’s not yet there at this point?
I have been conducting part of my tests with using a mock SMTP server, which has nothing to do with SSL, but just listens for unencrypted traffic on port 25 and does not send out any actual emails, rather saving them to a file as EML instead. Extremely useful for testing services that send out emails. I don’t see any reason why n8n should not be able to cooperate with such arrangement, so that I can extract the invitation link from an EML file later.
Finally, is there perhaps a way to skip configuring SMTP server altogether and just create accounts for the users some other way with notifying them later manually?
Such would also work in my scenario.
Generally, right now I find myself in a situation were in order to use the user management feature I need to have an SMTP server configured in a particular way that I have no control over. In my particular use case it’s very limiting.
Thanks and appreciating every help.
Have a good day.
