Setup Email service in NSS 5.2.4 on root machine (via config.json + nodemailer + ?)

How can I setup and configure the Email service in NSS ? (for emailtemplates in /var/www/sitename/config/templates/emails/)

These are the steps I took so far:

then I tried to test (click forgot passwd) ,… said no email service set up.

I guess somewhere in NSS I must at least set the password of the gmail account …? how do I unlock gmail account completely and configure NSS ? (should be done with nodemailer)

For Gmail your config.json should include :

  "useEmail": true,
  "emailHost": "",
  "emailPort": "465",
  "emailAuthUser": "",
  "emailAuthPass": "gmailPass"

Apparently the information has disappeared from the README



super, muchas gracias, thanx, got it running after unlocking…

Did you get email working?

yeah, just additionally had to unlock the google account… works now, at least from local self test, for a remote user is technically a bit different as self test, but should work, I think…
