Hi guys,

Recently I come to wonder what's the difference between the two configuration of email.


As I saw that when I try to send mail using email element in process, I specified the "From" field, but it sent the mail using the one I specified at EMail.Server.User.

Could you help me differentiate these fields as their purposes? May I have some thing wrong in the configuration?

Hello @ToanLC

  • The value of the property EMail.Server.MailAddress is used as sender email address for mail send by the engine, e.g. task notifications.
  • The value of the property EMail.Server.User is used as login-name to authenticate to the mail server, configured with the system property EMail.Server.Host and EMail.Server.Port. the configured mail server is used for all outgoing mails.

Hi @Flavio Sadeghi, I have just one more question is that what is the "From" field for in the email element of the process?

Hello @ToanLC, the email, specified in the "from" field is used as the from-mail of sending mails. On Designer the from and to is overwritten in preferences -> Axon.ivy -> Email, so that the emails are not sent to the effective recipients, but to the addresses, specified in the preferences. For testing purpose. Since 6.6 if the default is set on Designer, an internal mail-server of the designer is used and the mails are listed in the view "Email messages".
