You can send out emails from your DreamFactory instance using various email service providers. The following email providers are currently supported:

  • AWS SES
  • Mailgun
  • Mandrill
  • Local sendmail
  • SMTP

Provisioning an Email Service

You can provision an email service from the admin console.

Log in to the admin console and select the 'Services' tab. Click on the 'Create' button from the left menu. On the service creation form select your email provider from the 'Service Type' drop down box. Enter a short, one-word, meaningful name for your service as well as a label and description.

For this tutorial, let's say we name our email service 'mailer'. Depending on which provider you pick, you will need to enter the service configuration values on the 'Config' tab. Create your email service after entering all your configuration values. Your email service is now ready to send out emails.
