Hi there,

What I personally do in such cases is to use an SMTP service like SendGrid. That way you would not have to run and maintain your own mail server.

They also offer a free account which is sufficient for most use cases.

Once you create an account with SendGrid, you will get SMTP details which you could use for your application to send out emails.

For more information on how to complete the SMTP configuration you could follow the steps from the official Dokuwiki documentation here:

Hope that this helps!

Regards,

Bobby
