Using hMailServer as an SMTP server

Prerequisites

To use hMailServer as the SMTP Server make sure you have installed hMailServer.

 

What you need to do

Once you have hMailServer installed, carry out the following steps to setup the SMTP:

 

1. Create a domain for the SMTP server

2. Configure the SMTP

3. Configure email server parameters in Bizagi

 

Procedure

Follow the steps described below.

 

1. Create a domain for the SMTP server

Access hMailServer as the administrator, right click the domains node, and create a new domain. Create an account in your server.

 

SMTP_20

 

Add an account:

 

SMTP_21

 

2. Configure the SMTP

Open the Settings node, then Protocols, and select the SMTP node. On the right-hand side, select the Delivery of e-mail tab and give a Local host name:

 

SMTP_22

 

Make sure that the Remote host name is empty.

 

2.1 Set the IPRange with no authentication.

If you do not need to authenticate users accessing the SMTP server, open the Advanced node, then the IP Ranges folder, and click My Computer, which is an IP range that is created by default by hMailServer. Make sure that Require SMTP authentication checks are not selected:

 

SMTP_23

 

3. Configure the Email server parameters in Bizagi

Once the SMTP is setup, configure the environment parameters for your Bizagi project.

In the production or testing environments you may do this through the Bizagi Management Console as provided by Automation Server. Reference the local server (localhost) as the SMTP server.

 

For this part, provide information for the Email configuration section.

Check the Enable mail check box and specify a sender account that uses the expected domain:

 

localhostservice

 

Click OK to save changes and make sure you perform an IISReset on your IIS.
