Keywords: Canvas LMS - Microsoft Azure - How to - Email configuration (SMTP)
Hello, I have following the CanvasLMS integration guide on an Azure instance. The VM is up and running, I have putty working, I installed the Let's Encrypt SSL cert, and all was well. I cannot, however, send email through the sendgrid SMTP server through the application.
- I created an API key in Sendgrid
- I ran telnet on SSH and was able to send a test email using the API key w/ base64 encoding
- I updated the production node of the outgoing file as follows:
user_name: "PER SENDGRID DOCUMENTATION"
password: "BASE64 ENCODED WHICH WORKED IN TELNET"
# plain, login, or cram_md5
default_name: "No Reply"
The application says account creation emails are being sent successfully, but sendgrid shows no activity. Please advise.
