Hello everybody!

EDIT: This tool is now included "Proxmox Toolbox" - Edited this post in order to update path and links.

As beginner, i had some difficulties getting Proxmox e-mail settings configuration up and running.
I recently wrote a little script to get the configuration done with ease on my youtube channel and guessed it may interest some of you.

If this post goes against any of the forum rules, all my apologies, please delete it.

The script was wrote with Gmail configuration in mind but it have been tested working with Infomaniak and should work for a wild bunch of servers.
I have wrote it with all my knowledge and love but it may be incomplete but it does work and is really easy to use.

there's a demonstration of this script there, it's in french but the script is wrote and commented in english.

USAGE:
This tool is now included in Proxmox Toolbox:
Please find more informations about it in Proxmox forum, on github or watch a demonstration (and improve your french)

For Gmail, another step is needed, you need to allow less secure apps in your account settings:

You can read the script there:

Hope it helps!

It'd be nice in English, but generally clear :)

But it did not work for me.

I do use 2-steps verification in gmail and with other services use application specific password.
Is your script handling this ?

Thx !
