Configure EMAIL in devstack

Hi, I am trying to configure email for reset password in devstack. Tried modifying the below properties:

lms.yml
EMAIL_HOST
EMAIL_PORT
EMAIL_USE_TLE

and in lms.auth.json
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD
EMAIL_HOST_USER

after setting up above properties also, email is being stored into container file directory.

Anyone has come across this type of issue. Please help me

You need to set EMAIL_BACKEND in you lms/envs/devstack_docker.py or cos/envs/devstack_docker.py to the one you want to use.

It can be either django.core.mail.backends.smtp.EmailBackend or django_ses.SESBackend.

You fall into this situation because lms/envs/devstack.py and cms/envs/devstack.py config rewrites an original backend to the following:

EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.filebased.EmailBackend'
EMAIL_FILE_PATH = '/edx/src/ace_messages/'

In case you don’t use docker for devstack deployment you have to change the EMAIL_BACKEND in your lms/envs/devstack.py and `cms/envs/devstack.py.
