    At the moment there are various places to set mail settings

    Advanced Settings - Notifications - Profiles
    Advanced Settings - System - SMTP
    Advanced Settings - Security - Membership Provider - default - parameters - recoveryMailAddress

    and I would not be supriesed if there were more around for E-commerce :-)

    Administration - Basic lets you set the provider for newletters. would it be possible to in some way boundle the SMTP, Mail releated stuff in one place?

    Hey Markus,

    I think there should be indeed one place to set the SMTP settings.
    In my opinion it would be best to use the Notification Profiles for this, since in that case you can create multiple profiles, if needed.

    I guess that a lot of existing functionality should be rewritten to accomplish this, since it should all be based on the Notification profiles then.

    But I also vote for a more generic solution.

    Kind regards,
    Daniel

    Crazy thing too is the fields in a few of the places are different as well :)  I THINK gmail smtp works on the general smtp, but not on one of the other forms (can't remember which)

    @Steve: try a different port number. That worked for me :)
    I know it sounds crazy...

    Best,

    Every time I set up a new project I have to remember where to set the e-mail addresses.

    System - Smtp (Email settings) incl. DefaultSenderEmailAddress
    Notifications - Profiles - Default
    Security - Membership Providers - Default - Parameters - recoveryMailAddress

    Still wondering if there is an matrix around to show us which part of Sitefinty is relaying on which settings.

    Hi Markus,

    all the desired setting can be found in our documentation:

    Configuring the password recovery

    Set up SMTP & Email campaigns settings

    For now the only available option is to configure these settings using the articles above.
