Using the Mail.Ru SMTP server

For Saltcorn to send email, an SMTP server needs to be configured. If you have a account, you can use the SMTP server.  

There are no limit for amount of emails that can be send. More information at

Then fill in the email settings in Saltcorn (Settings menu, About application -> Email) with the following values:

  • SMTP host:
  • SMTP username: Your full email address, e.g [email protected]
  • SMTP password: the application specific password generated above
  • SMTP port: 465
  • SMTP secure: ideally this should be ticked (on). However on some installations you get an error when using secure protocols. In that case, leave it unticked (off)
  • Email from address: Your full email address, e.g [email protected]

Click Save to save the settings. You can now enable settings that require an email server, for instance password reset or use the send email action.

On more recent versions of Saltcorn, you can click the "Send test email" button below Save to check that your email configuration works. This will send an email to your email-from-address if correctly configured.
