An Adapter for the Bamboo email app.


The package can be installed as:

  1. Add bamboo_smtp to your list of dependencies in mix.exs:
def deps do
  [{:bamboo_smtp, "~> 1.5.0"}]
  1. Add bamboo and bamboo_smtp to your list of applications in mix.exs:
def application do
  [applications: [:bamboo, :bamboo_smtp]]
  1. Setup your SMTP configuration:
# In your config/config.exs file
config :my_app, MyApp.Mailer,
  adapter: Bamboo.SMTPAdapter,
  server: "smtp.domain",
  hostname: "your.domain",
  port: 1025,
  username: "", # or {:system, "SMTP_USERNAME"}
  password: "pa55word", # or {:system, "SMTP_PASSWORD"}
  tls: :if_available, # can be `:always` or `:never`
  allowed_tls_versions: [:"tlsv1", :"tlsv1.1", :"tlsv1.2"], # or {":system", ALLOWED_TLS_VERSIONS"} w/ comma seprated values (e.g. "tlsv1.1,tlsv1.2")
  ssl: false, # can be `true`
  retries: 1,
  no_mx_lookups: false, # can be `true`
  auth: :if_available # can be `always`. If your smtp relay requires authentication set it to `always`.

Sensitive credentials should not be committed to source control and are best kept in environment variables. Using {:system, "ENV_NAME"} configuration is read from the named environment variable at runtime.

The hostname option sets the FQDN to the header of your emails, its optional, but if you don't set it, the underlying gen_smtp module will use the hostname of your machine, like localhost.
