    Hi,

    I am planning a migration from 1.5.3 to 1.6.0 and I am confused about e-mail sending.
    Currently I am using nodebb-plugin-emailer-ses but now I see that "core" Email was rebuild and looks like this:
    0_1506089497625_Zrzut ekranu 2017-09-22 o 16.11.10.png

    which also includes SES and SES-.... in the dropdown.
    I am confused. Should I continue using the third-party plugin or does somehow core NodeBB knows how to talk to SES?

    Also what is

    Use an external email server to send mails

    ?

    The switch offers no explanation and seems not to do anything.

    Any help/clarifications will be welcome :-)

    I suggest you try it. It has been tested with Gmail, but we haven't been able to test other providers there.

    The switch offers no explanation and seems not to do anything.

    The switch enables that configuration, but it only applies if an emailer plugin isn't activated.



  • So far so good :)

    OK, thanks for the explanation.

    I think I will stick to the external SES plugin since, as far as I understand, this whole section is about using SMTP for sending e-mails which requires storing credentials in database. We use IAM roles to grant implicit permissions to use SES on instances that run our Forums - and nodebb-plugin-emailer-ses is able to pick that up.
