How to configure that it is OK that there's no outgoing e-mail server?

Trying to create a user, I'm faced by an warning message, "Cannot send email: no outgoing email server configured. You can configure it under Settings/General Settings.". I don't want outgoing mail. How can I carry on creating a user, please? Is there a way to configure that it is OK to not send e-mails?

Thanks, Shahar

The user password is sent via email. I would configure an SMTP server locally just for that purpose, otherwise there will be no way for users to get their initial password, and sign in.

You can deactivate the emails from your user settings.

You can also change the password in V7 without setting up smtp. Just change the generated password under: Settings>User>choose User>click on the more button> Change Password.

Hope this helps! :)

Where do you deactivate the emails?

without setting up an smtp you can create a user when you deactivate "Receive Messages by email" under SETTINGS > CREATE NEW USER > Receive Messages by email - choose "never".
