I’m migrating my blog from ghost (older version) to ghost (new version). The server I was previously hosted on had its own mail transport agent, so I didn’t really have to worry about sending emails (or, at least it just worked). Now, however, I need to setup an email system.
I have 0 members, so bulk email isn’t a concern at this time. However, transactional emails (user signups, etc…) are not going through. I have set up my config.production.json file as follows:
Thanks for the response. I actually used this as my configuration guide. Something still appears to be incorrect in the setup, though, because even with that exact configuration (with my passwords and such), I’m still getting no emails passed through.
I’ve also tried setting it with a dreamhost email address (I also have an email address that’s @ my custom domain hosted by dreamhost). This doesn’t work, either, which leads me to believe there’s some kind of connection issue between my server and these SMTP servers. It’s a linode that I just set up with Ubuntu 20.04.
How would I go about diagnosing where the email is getting dropped?
