How to Configure Mantis Mail


Mantis is a free PHP framework designed for bug-tracking services. If you have released a piece of software and you want users to be able to report, track and help fix bugs, Mantis provides a ready made database for such work without requiring you to write the entire thing from scratch. Configuration in Mantis is performed by modifying variables manually in the database's PHP code, and the Mantis website contains a detailed list of all the variables pertaining to email functionality.

  • Open the Mantis configuration file in any text editor. It's a PHP file called "config_inc.php" in the "mantis" directory on your website's server.

  • Add configuration options between the "<?php" and "?>" tags. A list of email configuration options is available on the Mantis website (see Resources) in the form of PHP variables. Set any of these variables you want using the following format:

    $g_from_email = ""
    where "$g_from_email" is whatever variable you want to set and "" is whatever you want to set it to.

  • Save the configuration file and exit. Whatever changes you made will now take effect in your Mantis setup.
