I’m using Kavita to host a book site, but using their default email system, no one is getting the emails (not even in spam), so I’m wanting to use my own sites email server, but I’m unsure how to go about it.
In Kavita, you need to specify the email server address, and no matter what I enter, it says the test fails.
Is there a specific address to use for instances like this? It want’s an https address, and I’ve tried using my https webmail address, but that fails as well.
Kavita comes out of the box with an email service to power flows like invite user, forgot password, etc. Emails sent via our service are deleted immediately. You can use your own email service, by setting up Kavita Email service. Set the url of the email service and use the Test button to ensure it works. At any time you can reset to the default. There is no way to disable emails for authentication, although you are not required to use a valid email address for users. Confirmation links will always be saved to logs and presented in the UI. Registration/Confirmation emails will not be sent if you are not accessing Kavita via a publicly reachable url. If you want Send To device to work, you must host your own email service.
Which does not send any messages. So I’m wanting to use my own domains email address to send the invites from.
It has to be in the form of https://[emailserver] and I’m not sure what my domains email server address is. I’ve tried webmail.domain, mail.domain and email.domain and none work.
