Hi, Good Day, Can anyone please help me to configure my Email Gateways in OpenERP version 7, so that I can send notifications to a specific employee about his/her task. Thanks in advance.,
Your opinion will be highly appreciated. :D
For a [gmail] incoming port server, you can either choose IMAP (port 993) or POP (port 995) protocol - summarized here.
From gmail help article, it seems IMAP is a more modern protocol, so I chose it.
For Incoming Mail Server, assuming you chose the IMAP protocol instead of POP:
Navigate to Settings/Configuration/General Settings/Configure the incoming email gateway
Name : *anything you want* Server Type : IMAP server Server Name : imap.gmail.com Port : 993 SSL/TLS : [â] *make sure to check this or else you will get an error* Supply your email address and password. I did not supply any other information to the Server Action Field or to the Advanced tab.
Only OpenERP users that supply their email address and password to the Configuration can fetch the unread messages in their inbox and will appear in the Messaging Module. As I have read, OpenERP will fetch every 5 minutes but you can press Fetch Now to force the fetch.
BTW, i'm using google apps email server but I'm using a custom domain, so my email looks like: email@example.com but is still served by gmail
For an outgoing email setup, even if I configure all the emails of many users, the email is always sent from the first configured [outgoing] email, also asked here
All emails that arrive on my inbox is from firstname.lastname@example.org. I also don't know how to change the "from" address. Maybe Fabien's suggestion of configuring a local server will make it work.
You can configure your mail gateway of any service provider, for example if you are using gmail then the configuration will like this, â¢Gmail SMTP server address: smtp.gmail.com â¢Gmail SMTP user name: Your full Gmail address (e.g. email@example.com) â¢Gmail SMTP password: Your Gmail password â¢Gmail SMTP port: 465 â¢Gmail SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes other mail options are also available.
So finally I succeded in getting emails for a single email to a discussion group.
- Create an imap account for that email firstname.lastname@example.org
- Change the alias on the discussion group to email@example.com -In Actions to Perform on Incoming emails => Create new Record "Discussion group"
This worked for me. But I still do not understand why some messages are sent and others not.
Question: I want the users to get additionally emails on all the notifications from their message inbox. I changed the preferences to "Incoming Emails and Discussions" but user do not get new messages?
