Your MDrivenServer will need access to an SMTP service to send emails. Sign up with Gmail and use your information to access an internet-connected SMTP server.

Enter the information in the MDrivenServer interface as described in the image below:

Testing Your Email Server Outside of the MDriven Server

Start Windows PowerShell and enter the following (pasting is easier). The example below works for Office365.

$From = "<senders address, not login>"
$To = "<destination email address>"
$Subject = "Test 1"
$Body = "This is what I want to say"
$SMTPServer = "smtp.office365.com"
$SMTPPort = "587"
Send-MailMessage -From $From -to $To -Subject $Subject -Body $Body -SmtpServer $SMTPServer -port $SMTPPort -UseSsl -Credential (Get-Credential)

PowerShell will open a Windows dialog box to enter the SMTP credentials. Enter your username and password there.

If you are on Azure-ps-prompt, the password dialog will fail. Try:

$username = 'user@url.se'
$password = ConvertTo-SecureString 'thepwd' -AsPlainText -Force
$psCred = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -ArgumentList ($username, $password)
Send-MailMessage -From 'user@url.se' -Credential $psCred -To 'someone@somewhere.se' -Subject 'Test1000' -Body 'Body test1'   -UseSsl -Port 587 -SmtpServer 'smtp.office365.com'
