Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I have installed openerp-allinone-setup-7.0-latest in windows server 2008 R2.
I have configured the outgoing email servers and Test Connection. The message âConnection test succeeded! Everything seems properly set up!â but I failed to send out an email. May I know what is the problem?
Should I modify the configuration in openerp-server.conf as below?
specify the SMTP email address for sending email
email_from = False
specify the SMTP server for sending email
smtp_server = localhost
specify the SMTP port
smtp_port = 25
specify the SMTP server support SSL or not
smtp_ssl = False
specify the SMTP username for sending email
smtp_user = False
specify the SMTP password for sending email
smtp_password = False
In setting > technical > email > outgoing mail server :
try to configure it with :
Smtp server: smtp.gmail.com
Smtp port: 465
Connection Security: SSL/TLS
Enable debugging mode and provide your username: email@example.com and password.
Now save it and click Test connection.
Result: Connection test succeeded!Everything seems properly set up!
Now go to Messaging menu in and click on Compose a new message and send a message.
Hope this works :) .
I was able to get past this error by populating the "Email" field in the company information for the company I have setup. Just mouse over the company icon in the upper-left hand side and click "Edit Company data". When the company information form appears fill in an email address on the right hand side of the form. This email address field is used for the sending address when creating a new user. When creating a new user before this information has been populated a misleading error is displayed on the page that "Cannot send email: No outbound email servers are defined...", but this is not accurate. This error is displayed even when outbound SMTP servers have been configured. A full write-up of this can be found under bug 1160819.
@ Jessie Goto Settings--> General Settings --> Configure the Outgoing Email Server --> create new--> Description: Gmail, smtp server: smtp.gmail.com, Smtp port: 465, Debugging marked, connection security: SSL/TLS, Gmail username, password, now click Test connection, result is Connection test succeeded! Everything seems properly set up! . check it.
Thanks for help.
I successfully send an email out if compose a new message but I cannot send an invitation email (Users -> Send an invitation email). The error message is as below although i already configure the outgoing email.
Cannot send email: no outgoing email server configured. You can configure it under Settings/General Settings.
