Email setup

  • To use Gitea’s built-in Email support, update the app.ini config file [mailer] section:
[mailer]
ENABLED = true
HOST    = mail.mydomain.com:587
FROM    = gitea@mydomain.com
USER    = gitea@mydomain.com
PASSWD  = `password`
  • Restart Gitea for the configuration changes to take effect.

  • To send a test email to validate the settings, go to Gitea > Site Administration > Configuration > SMTP Mailer Configuration.
