Springboot Email

You can use Springboot to send out emails. All you need is access SMTP server. You can then use the JavaMailSender interface to send emails out.

Add dependency

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
    <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-mail</artifactId>
</dependency>

Add email SMTP server configuration settings to application.properties

#mail
spring.mail.host=smtp.gmail.com
spring.mail.username=username
spring.mail.password=password
spring.mail.port=587
spring.mail.properties.mail.smtp.auth=true
spring.mail.properties.mail.smtp.starttls.enable=true
spring.mail.properties.mail.debug=true
spring.mail.properties.mail.sender=senderEmail@gmail.com
