SMTP configuration not found in grafana.ini

Hi All,

We have grafana pod running in our AWS EKS cluster.
When I login to the pod and check the etc/grafana/grafana.ini file there is no option for configuring smtp:-

bash-5.1$ cat grafana.ini
check_for_updates = false
reporting_enabled = false
url =
mode = console
root_url = https://monitoring.xxxxxx.xxxx.
serve_from_sub_path = true
data = /var/lib/grafana/data
logs = /var/log/grafana
plugins = /var/lib/grafana/plugins
enabled = true
org_name = Main Org.
org_role = Viewer

I am checking it correctly or missing something? Can I still configure SMTP?

Hello! There should be a section in /etc/grafana/grafana.ini for SMTP settings, under ### SMTP / Emailing ###

Docs Configuration | Grafana Labs

Note: This section of the Community forums is for topics related to Grafana Cloud. You may wish to repost this in the Grafana open source section to reach the OSS audience.

Thanks Melody for the response but there is no section for SMTP. I’ve pasted the entire config file on my post. No such options ### SMTP / Emailing ###

I was not aware of the other forum you suggested, let me check there too.
