Webcenter Sites: Configure Gmail SMTP Server

It's not possible to send over SSL/TLS, only SMTP. As a workaround you can set up a local SMTP mail server that forwards everything over SSL/TLS to your eventual mail server, and then configure Sites to send to your local SMTP server.

Adding an SMTP Service

To add an SMTP service to enable the Enterprise Gateway to accept SMTP connections, perform the following steps in the Policy Studio:

  1. On the Services tab on the left, select a Process tree node (for example, the default Oracle Enterprise Gateway).
  2. Right-click, and select Add SMTP Services.
  3. In the SMTP Services dialog, specify a unique name for the SMTP service in the Name field.
  4. In the Outgoing Server Settings section, complete the following settings:
    Host Host name or IP address of the remote mail server. This is the server to which the Enterprise Gateway forwards incoming SMTP commands (for example, stmp.gmail.com). You can also specify a mail server running locally on the same machine as the Enterprise Gateway using an address of localhost or 127.0.0.1.
    Port Port on which to connect to the remote mail server. Defaults to port 25.
  5. In the Security section, complete the following settings:
    Connection Security Select the type of security used for the connection to the remote mail server. Defaults to None. Other possible values are SSL and STARTTLS.
    Trusted Certificates Use this tab to select the trusted CA certificates used in the security handshake for the connection to the remote mail server. This field is mandatory if SSL or STARTTLS connection security is selected.
    Client SSL Authentication Use this tab to specify the trusted client certificates used in the security handshake for the connection to the remote mail server. This field is optional if SSL or STARTTLS connection security is selected.
    Advanced Use this tab to specify a list of ciphers to use during the security handshake for the connection to the remote mail server. Defaults to DEFAULT. For more details, see the OpenSSL ciphers manpage. This field is optional if SSL or STARTTLS connection security is selected.
  6. In the Authentication section, complete the following settings:
    Username Specify the username used to authenticate the Enterprise Gateway with a remote SMTP server using the AUTH SMTP command. For more details, see the section on SMTP Authentication.
    Password Specify the password used to authenticate the Enterprise Gateway with a remote SMTP server using the AUTH SMTP command. For more details, see the section on SMTP Authentication.
  7. Select the Include in real time monitoring checkbox to monitor the SMTP services using the Enterprise Gateway real-time monitoring and Service Monitor tools.
  8. Click OK. This creates a tree node for the STMP service under the selected process in the Services tree.
