Mailer Configuration

WARNING This documentation is for Cells v1. Looking for Pydio Cells v2 docs?

In this chapter, we have a look at the mailing system integrated to Pydio Cells and guide you through some sample configurations.

Please Note: this configuration requires a restart of the server to be properly taken into account.

Configure Mails

To configure the mailer, go to Application Parameters > Mailers:

Field Description
Default FROM email address Put the email that you're going to use as sender address for notifications and as default (see below).
From/Sender address and name to use Select how the address and display name is choosen. This setting controls how the envelope from address and the from mail and sender mail headers are set.
Mailer engine What type of engine you're going to use to send the mails you will have 3 choices we are going to explain all of them and show you a configuration sample.

Depending on the engine you have chosen, you see one of the following form:

1. SMTP Server

Field Description
Server Hostname the SMTP server's hostname, for example gmail's smtp is smtp.gmail.com
Server Port The port of the SMTP server, for example gmail's default port is 587
Connection User The username of the address used to connect to this SMTP server, such as john.doe@gmail.com, john.doe@pydio.com
Connection Password password of the user above
Queue Type Right now do not modify this field.

2. Sendmail

In order to use sendmail:

  • Make sure that you have installed and configured it on your server
  • (Depending on which version you are using), make also sure that the /usr/bin/sendmail path is correct.
  • For more security and to protect the field from getting exposed or used with paths that should not be accessible, you can configure the path for the mailer inside the Pydio.json file located in ~/.config/pydio/cells/<here>, look for this part and put the where your mailer is:
    "pydio.grpc.mailer": {
      "queue": {
        "@value": "boltdb"
      },
      "sender": {
        "@value": "sendmail",
        "executable": "<your value>"
      }

3. Sendgrid

To use sendgrid, you only have to:

  • Retrieve your specific API key
  • Put it in the corresponding field.

[Enterprise Edition] Custom templates for mailer

With the Enterprise Edition there are 3 additional options that will allow you to change the mailer template:

  • Change the Logo
  • Change the Application Name
  • Change the Footer (Usually copyrights)

Refer to the numbers on the screenshot for the list below

  1. To modify the Logo you must go to Advanced Settings > UI Customization and modify Emails Template Logo with an url pointing to an image directly, for instance http://domain/image.png.

  2. To modify the application name go to Application Core > Main Options and change the Application Title setting.

  3. To modify the footer (bottom text) go to Advanced Settings > UI Customization and modify Emails Template Footer.
