Mail Configuration



Mantis Bug Tracker is a free and open source, web-based bug tracking system released under the terms of the GNU General Public License version 2. The most common use of MantisBT is to track software defects. However, MantisBT is often configured by users to serve as a more generic issue tracking system and project management tool.

Configuring email sending on Mantis

If you installed Mantis Bug Tracker locally ,You will need to configure email sending on MantisBT  to be able to send an email notifications.
You could use any mail providers to send your notifications i.e. Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, GMail or any other providers  you want. In this session  I will use Hotmail as my email provider.
