imperia offers two options for sending emails:

  1. only internally, to other imperia users or
  2. to external adresses.

For a detailed description of the usage, read the chapter Mailing in the user manual.

You are able to send mails from the workflow, to both internal or external recipients. Therefore, the interactive plugin Mail is needed.

Therefore, set following system.conf variables:
