Do I have to setup my own email service if self host?


I am wondering if I have an out-of-box email service for self-hosting or if I have to set it up on my own.


For self-hosting with Appsmith, users will have to configure their own email service. The steps for this process can be found in the Appsmith documentation. Users will need to provide their email service credentials, including the SMTP server and port, along with their username and password. Once entered, users will need to save their updated configuration and restart Appsmith.

While the process may seem daunting, Appsmith's documentation provides clear instructions on how to configure email services. Any necessary code examples can also be found in the documentation. Once configured, users can use Appsmith's email service to send notifications to users, reset passwords, and perform other necessary actions.
