Enable Email Notifications
On the Global Settings page, you configure the connection between YouTrack and a mail server. This enables notifications in YouTrack over email.
To enable email notifications:
Select the Enable checkbox for Email.
Enter values for the following settings:
Enter the server address of your SMTP server.
Enter the connection port for the SMTP server.
Select the protocol that is used by your SMTP server.
If your SMTP server does not require authentication, enable this option.
When enabled, YouTrack connects to your SMTP server without sending a login and password. The input fields for SMTP login and SMTP password are disabled. Values that are stored in these settings are ignored.
Enter the username of the account that is used to access the SMTP server.
Click the Change password button to specify the password for account that is used to access the SMTP server.
Select a previously uploaded SSL key or trusted certificate for secure connection to your mail server. For details, see SSL Keys.
Enter the address that you want to use to send email notifications. For more information about email addresses, see From and Reply-to Addresses.
Enter an optional address that you want to use for email replies. For more information about email addresses, see From and Reply-to Addresses.
When finished, click the Save button.
Test the connection.
Click the Send test message button.
Enter an email address to which the test message should be sent.
Click the Send button.
Check the email account that you sent the test message to and verify that the message was delivered.
If successful, the connection to your external mail service is configured and ready for use.
If unsuccessful, update your settings and test the connection until the message delivery is successful.
