Alfresco tips and tricks – #5 Email Outbound/Inbound

Alfresco make use of the OutboundSMTP subsystem informing you of certain events, such as recent site activities and invitations to join sites. For example when a new user is invited to a site an email is sent. In addition Alfresco also supports accessing the Repository via the IMAP protocol. The protocol allows email applications that support IMAP, including Outlook, Apple Mail and Thunderbird, to connect to and interact with Alfresco repositories directly from the mail application. Here the two subsystem settings (alfresco-global.properties).

    Hi Giuseppe .

    I just finished to set up the outbound email configuration subsystem, and it worked perfectly. Next, I’ll try to configure inbound email. So thank you, it was (and sure it’ll be later) very useful.
