Disable outgoing emails after restore

Dear Sir or Madam,

I want to disable the outgoing emails after I restore JIRA on our secondary system. Maybe you know the path/file where I'll find the option to disable it?! I don't need a GUI solution smile

Thank you!


Kind Regards,

Hi Christian,


please look at this page to find the necessary command line parameters: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/setting-properties-and-options-on-startup-120007.html


Set to 'true' to disable mail. In Linux setenv.sh, there is a pre-existing flag to uncomment.

Hi Tibor,

thank you so much! Is there also a MySQL-DB Entry which I should change?

Kind Regards,
