The MediaCP sends emails to both administrators and customers for various reasons including:
- New Account provisioning
- Account Password reset
- Monthly statistic reports
- Service welcome emails
- Service notifications including bitrate abuse and suspension notifications
The default email configuration uses your servers default sendmail configuration, which may be blocked by spam filters if your system and domain name is not configured correctly. Generally we recommend to configure SMTP to send emails.
Troubleshoot Email Issues
If you are having difficulty with sending emails from the MediaCP then we recommend using smtper.net to test and troubleshoot your mail server settings. Once you have successfully tested your mail server at smtper.net then you should copy the configuration into MediaCP System Config -> Email.
If this is successful and you are still having difficulties then you can check for error messages from the System Health check.
- Enable SMTP Debug from Admin -> System Config -> EMAIL
- Navigate to Administration -> System Health
- Here will be the output log from sending the email message. If unsuccessful there will be an error message listed here to review further.
