Hi, guys, I tried to use the "Invite User" for my Umbraco hosting on Azure App Service.
But it says "Server error: Contact administrator, see log for full details. Failed to invite user".
Is there anything I need to set up to get the email invitation working ?
Umbraco doesn't come with an SMTP server as part of it. So in order to get e-mailing working you will need a 3rd party SMTP server (or access to one). For example, you could set up a dedicated Gmail account and use Gmail as your SMTP server. There are quite a range of different SMTP providers around, a few of which I believe, work well with Azure hosted websites.
In the web config file there is a section that looks like this:
<network host="127.0.0.1" userName="username" password="password" />
Once you know your SMTP provider details you'll need to update these settings accordingly.
Host is your SMTP server (for example smtp.gmail.com [not sure if that is the right one for google, but it's an example])
UserName is your account username (for example mywebsitesemail@gmailcom)
and Password is you account password.
That should get you on the right path.
Some additional settings do exist for Mail Settings and they can be seen here in the answers to this Stack overflow question :-)
