Got email support working in my DockerDemos Drupal Docker image. SSMTP is the way to go with these containers. There’s no running daemon to have to manage, or to take up resources.
The image is setup to either do nothing with mail, use a default SSL setup if you pass your own SMTP server as an environmental variable (perfect for $WORK!) or let you use your own custom ssmpt.conf file.
Yeah, EMAIL! Lost password messages galore!
I’m beginning to copy over my technology-related posts from Google+ to this blog, mostly so I have an easy-to-read record of them. This one was originally published on 19 May 2014: Email and Docker Drupal Containers
