I installed SMTP module for Drupal 7. I enabled it and press Settings button to go to Settings menu. But there is no Setting menu there... How to reach it?

The SMTP module configuration page is at admin/config/system/smtp.

Make sure that you have the permission change the SMTP configuration.

  • The problem is that I do not have such page. I checked permissions - all is OK for admin.

  • Are you using D7 ? What version of the SMTP module are you using ? Did you try clear the caches ? Jan 5, 2015 at 20:30
  • Yes, it is Drupal 7. I tried both vertions - stable and dev. I cleared cashes.

    @user38998 We can't have idea why without knowing your view. Conflicting paths, maybe?

It was error in Views page - conflicting path. To find it I checked report page. After fixing this problem, Settings menu for SMTP module appeared.


Step 1: Download SMTP module and enable it.

Step 2: Go to Admin > Configuration > System > SMTP authentication support and set the following values:

  • Turn this module on or off: On.
  • SMTP server settings:
    • smtp server: smtp.gmail.com
    • smtp backup server: leave blank.
    • smtp port: 465
    • use encrypted protocol: select "use SSL"
  • SMTP authentication:
    • Enter a valid Gmail email address and password.
  • Email options:
    • Set the same email address that you used at SMTP Authentication.
  • Send test email: set an email to receive a sample email and to test whether the module is working.
  • Enable debugging: yes.

Step 2a(Optional): Allow Less Secure Apps Access which is here: http://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps

Step 3: Click on Save and go to your inbox to check. If there is an testing email then it is fine.

Note: Your email address provided in your smpt setting MUST be the same like in your site information.
