SMTP Setup

This is very simple to connect with SMTP if you knows liferay but if you are using liferay first time then this would be useful :

Graphical User Interface 

In Liferay 6 and Liferay 5.2.x, you can configure the SMTP server by going to Control Panel -> Server Administration -> Mail.


Fill out the SMTP fields with your information: we will use gmail for simplicity. This is actually an easy and reliable way to run your SMTP server.
SMTP Server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 465
[x] Use Secure Connection  << check the box
User: Your gmail username
Password: Your gmail password 
This will give you a working SMTP server!

Apache Tomcat 

This section shows how to configure the SMTP server with an email address in Apache Tomcat.
In the file: $LP/conf/Catalina/localhost/ROOT.xml
<!-- Mail -->
<Resource name="mail/MailSession" auth="Container" type="javax.mail.Session" mail.imap.host="localhost" mail.pop3.host="localhost" mail.smtp.host="localhost" mail.store.protocol="imap" mail.transport.protocol="smtp" />}}}
If you are using a Gmail account you should do the following:
<Resource
name="mail/MailSession"
auth="Container"
type="javax.mail.Session"
mail.imap.host="localhost"
mail.pop.host="localhost"
mail.store.protocol="imap"
mail.transport.protocol="smtp"
mail.smtp.host="smtp.gmail.com"
mail.smtp.port="465"
mail.smtp.auth="true"
mail.smtp.starttls.enable="true"
mail.smtp.user="username"
password="*****"
mail.smtp.socketFactory.class="javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory"
/>
