Hello,

I am using DNN 7.3.3.
For developing and testing purposes I have a copy of my production database with all live user accounts on my local computer and use local IIS Express. Because I don't want the users to receive nonsense mails I am looking for a way to disable all notification mails. Can I leave all fields in "SMTP Settings" empty? I am afraid that trying that will result in an error.

Or can I set a switch in my local database?

Thank you
Bernd

You can use the firewall to block all outgoing traffic on port 25 or add the server you have in your smtp settings in DNN to a host entry that points to 127.0.0.1 assuming you do not run a smtp server on your local machine. If you install https://github.com/ChangemakerStudios... on your local machine AND you create a host entry for the smtp server set in your DNN host settings you see each email send from your DNN installation in Papercut. Great for testing

Hello,

Changemaker Studio sounds good, and I'll try it some time. But an easier way should be to change ALL mail addresses to.my own address in SQL Management Studio, table User.
