Email Settings

Fleio uses Django underneath and all Django settings related to e-mail can be set in the file.

Going through the normal Fleio bootstrap process will ask for SMTP configurations and set them accordingly.

Further modification or addition of the e-mail server settings should be done in the file.

Full file path is:


If your SMTP server doesn’t require authentication, the minimum needed configuration for email sending to work is just one line in

EMAIL_HOST = '' # ex:

You can also configure SMTP authentication and other parameters:

EMAIL_HOST = '' # ex:
EMAIL_PORT = 587  # or the server PORT if non standard
EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'smtpUserName'  # a username, usually the e-mail address
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = 'UserPassword'  # the smtp user password
EMAIL_USE_TLS = True  # True if TLS should be enabled or False otherwise

All email settings are explained in the Django documentation:

After you update the e-mail settings variables inside you need to restart Fleio and Celery for the changes to take effect:

service fleio restart
service uwsgi-fleio restart
service celery restart

Please note that if you are using Gmail for smtp, you have to enable account access for less secure apps. Visit the following link to enable access for your account:
