Hi Guys,

we have successfully configured openstack controller with VMware hypervisor and we are able to create instances with out issues. we have created projects, users with email id's in Horizon webpage. we are looking email notifications when a user create instance, upload image, attaching volume to instance with his credentials.

we have edited the config file: /etc/openstack-dashboard/ , but it is not working. can some help how to configure this email configuration. appreciate your help.

so many things can go wrong. Please add more details to your question: check logs, everywhere, including the smtp logs to see where things get stuck

I think the best approach to this is to look into the OpenStack Notifications system:

You will most likely want to create some type of system that monitors the notification queues and reacts on certain events.

There is a great project called StackTach that reports on the various notifications that OpenStack emits. You could use this as a reference.
