Setting up transactional email? (SMTP)

Setting up SMTP

Support

Hi,

Just trying to get setup with Factor here and am getting a notification in my terminal, says:
Email could not be sent (SMTP service not setup)

What are the next steps? 👍🏼

So in your .env file there is a section for SMTP:

You can use mailgun.com to get a free domain based SMTP service

### other stuff

 # -- Email - Transactional
 # This information is available via any SMTP provider
 SMTP_USERNAME=""
 SMTP_PASSWORD=""
 SMTP_HOST=""

However, you can proceed with registering your admin user without setting up email, just check the console when running npx factor dev and you have signed up using the admin email listed in FACTOR_ADMINS, there will be the 'verification link' you can copy paste in your browser
