I am trying to set up SMTP server for email for Bitnami Discourse. I have followed step by step directions here, but the directions dont work. I`assume the Gmail direction and the smtp domain should be gmail.com with quotes and the same for sendgrid and elasticemail, but when i try to send a test email, it fails. ive also referenced other support questions, but nothing works
my discourse.conf is as follows:
// db stuff
smtp_address = "smtp.elasticemail.com"
smtp_port = 2525
smtp_domain = 'elasticemail.com'
smtp_user_name = // my username
smtp_password = //api key
smtp_enable_start_tls = true
I have the default bitnami security group that allows outbound traffic of 0.0.0.0/0
I am using the following AMI off of aws marketplace:
