JIRA: setup smtp server for incoming mails

hi,

I'm looking for a step-by-step documentation (that includes ALL items) that one needs to follow in order to set up JIRA to accept incoming email through SMTP.

There is this article that relates to Gmail, but I need this for my own company email server.

I also need to know how to setup secure smtp server.

Anyone has knowledge and experience with setting this up?

thanks!

Um, there isn't anything for setting Jira up to accept incoming mail through SMTP. SMTP is generally for sending and transporting mail to mailboxes, which you then talk to with IMAP or POP, or other mailbox protocols.

If you want Jira to send emails, you give it the settings for an SMTP server - https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+Email+Notifications

To receive them, you connect it to an IMAP or POP server, as per https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Creating+Issues+and+Comments+from+Email

If you're using another type of mail, you'll need to be able to convert it to one of those two, or possibly drop incoming mails to file (As it can read files as though they're a mail box)

Setting up the mail server for SMTP, IMAP and POP is more a case of "look at the docs for your chosen server" and then give the account details to JIra.
