Created: 02 Oct 2012 | 3 comments

Don't suppose there is a way to globally change the email settings in workflow?

need to change the smtp server in all of our workflows.

Thanks C

If it's hard coded into the component, then no.

If it's a project property, you can use a bulk edit tool to edit the properties.config files of the published WF's on the server and put the new server in there. I had to do this with a connection string when we moved our DB.

Lastly, if you are unsing a DNS name for the smtp server, as opposed to the IP address and it's an internal server you could just adjust the DNS entry to point to the new server.

Hi Simpest thing is to add the existing in the the LMhosts file and point the existing name at the new IP
