Setting up email newsletters with your own email server


I don’t need to set up MailGun as I have my own email server that is well configured.
I saw the great feature that was finally added in beta.

Instead of using a proprietary service such as Mailgun, can we use our own email server for the new email newsletters feature?

I setup my own Emailserver and it works :wink:

Ok I will try today later on. Thanks

Edit the produktive Json file at the rootfolder and add these

"mail": {
"from": "noreply@ domain.tld",
"transport": "SMTP",
"options": {
  "service": "mail",
  "host": "my.domain.tld",
  "port": 465,
  "secureConnection": true,
  "auth": {
    "user": "kontakt@ domain.tld",
    "pass": "yourpassword"

@Happyfeet01 this does not affect newsletters, the config you are showing is only for transactional system emails such as password resets etc.

If you want to send bulk email using Ghost’s built-in functionality then the only option right now is to use Mailgun.
