I’m new to Tutor and I’m trying to set up a Development Server for EdX with Tutor to trial things out.
I think I’m a little confused on how Tutor implements SMTP.
I’m trying to get it to use an SMTP service that traps mail so it doesn’t actually go to recipient’s mailboxes. Below is my options for SMTP in the config.yml
I know the functionality is correct because I can manually send mail to the service from the Tutor Server using telnet.
When I registered with an account with a GMail it received an email directly from the server it looks like, so clearly I am misunderstanding something.
I’ve been using https://docs.tutor.overhang.io/configuration.html already to help, and it shows the options, but doesn’t go in much detail in configuration.
After digging in the logs it looks like it is using Google’s SMTP Server. Is that a default?
