Sending emails and managing email accounts

Dear all,


I have two separate openmaint instances at the moment, one running on localhost, and the other running on a server. I am trying to get the email alerts (for workflow) to work for the server instance. 


The local one seems to work fine, so I attempted to replicate the conditions exactly for the server instance, but I still cannot get the emails to work. Can anyone give me advice or hints on what to look for when troubleshooting?


Could you please share the configuration procedure of email setup that you followed for your local machine. Thanks
