Configuring Email Sending Parameters

Email sending parameters can be configured using the application properties listed below. All of them are runtime parameters and are stored in the database, but can be overridden for a specific Middleware block in its app.properties file.

All email sending parameters are available via the EmailerConfig configuration interface.

  • cuba.email.fromAddress – the default sender’s address. It is used if the EmailInfo.from attribute is not specified.

    Default value: DoNotReply@localhost

  • cuba.email.smtpHost – the address of the SMTP server.

    Default value: test.host

  • cuba.email.smtpPort – the port of the SMTP server.

    Default value: 25

  • cuba.email.smtpAuthRequired flags whether the SMTP server requires authentication. It corresponds to the mail.smtp.auth parameter, which is passed at the creation of the javax.mail.Session object.

    Default value: false

  • cuba.email.smtpStarttlsEnable – flags the use of the STARTTLS command when authenticating on the SMTP server. It corresponds to the mail.smtp.starttls.enable parameter, which is passed at the creation of the javax.mail.Session object.

    Default value: false

  • cuba.email.smtpUser – the user name for SMTP server authentication.

  • cuba.email.smtpPassword – the user password for SMTP server authentication.

  • cuba.email.delayCallCount – is used in asynchronous sending of emails to skip first few calls of EmailManager.queueEmailsToSend() after server startup to reduce the load during application initialization. Email sending will start with the next call.

    Default value: 2

  • cuba.email.messageQueueCapacity – for asynchronous sending, the maximum number of messages read from the queue and sent in one call of EmailManager.queueEmailsToSend().

    Default value: 100

  • cuba.email.defaultSendingAttemptsCount for asynchronous sending, the default number of attempts to send an email. It is used if the attemptsCount parameter is not specified when calling Emailer.sendEmailAsync().

    Default value: 10

  • cuba.email.maxSendingTimeSec – the maximum expected time in seconds, which is required to send an email to the SMTP server. It is used for asynchronous sending to optimize the selection of SendingMessage objects from the DB queue.

    Default value: 120

  • cuba.email.sendAllToAdmin – indicates that all messages should be sent to the cuba.email.adminAddress address, regardless of the specified recipient’s address. It is recommended to use this parameter during system development and debugging.

    Default value: false

  • cuba.email.adminAddress – the address, to which all messages are sent if the cuba.email.sendAllToAdmin property is switched on.

    Default value: admin@localhost

  • cuba.emailerUserLogin – the login of system user, used by asynchronous email sending code to be able to persist the information to the database. It is recommended to create a separate user (for example, emailer) without a password, so that it will be impossible to log in under his name via user interface. This is also convenient to search for messages related to email sending in the server log.

    Default value: admin

You can view the current parameter values and send a test message using the app-core.cuba:type=Emailer JMX bean.
