Dear sheikh,

Yes, It is possible to use googlesmtp service for sending emails in koha.
The step by step procedure for ubuntu system is as follows:-

*1. Installation of postfix mail server package. *

 Open a a terminal and apply following command,

 apt-get install postfix

Select no configuration in the post installation screen.

*2. Copy the configuration file.*

 cp /usr/share/postfix/main.cf.debian /etc/postfix/main.cf

 *3. Install following packages too*

 apt-get install libsasl2-2
 apt-get install libsasl2-modules
 apt-get install ca-certificates

 *4. Open the following file and add some lines.*

 gedit /etc/postfix/main.cf

 Add the following lines at the bottom of the file.

 relayhost = [smtp.gmail.com]:587
 smtp_sasl_auth_enable = yes
 smtp_sasl_password_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/sasl_passwd
 smtp_sasl_security_options = noanonymous
 smtp_tls_CAfile = /etc/postfix/cacert.pem
 smtp_use_tls = yes

 *5. Create a new file to save the gmail password.*

 gedit /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd

 Add the following line in the opened file.

 [smtp.gmail.com]:587    [hidden email]:yourpassword

 Add your gmail user name and password.

 *6. Change the permission of following file.*

 chmod 400 /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd

 *7.  Translate the /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd to Postfix lookup tables.*

 postmap /etc/postfix/sasl_passwd

 *8. Create the /etc/aliases.db*

 postalias hash:/etc/aliases

 *9. Create the /etc/postfix/cacert.pem.*

 cat /etc/ssl/certs/Equifax_Secure_CA.pem >> /etc/postfix/cacert.pem

 *10.  Restart Postfix.*

 /etc/init.d/postfix restart


Be Sure that you done the below step before to start email in Koha notices:-

Administration > Patron categories > Overdue notice required > Yes

Koha Administration > Patrons > Enhancedmessagingpreferences > Allow


I think this is all you need. Enjoy!!!
