Hello everybody,

We want to sent an email or a SMS to user via Koha.
Do we have to have something special on the koha server?
How to we set up these functions?

Hi Luis,

for setting up email facility:
1. you need to install Postfix, is a free and open-source - Mail Transfer
Agent (MTA) on  Operating system (OS).
2. follow instructions in the following URL for configurations:
http://kohageek.blogspot.in/search?q=postfix
3. then using your Library Gmail ID, Koha system will be able to
automatically send  email notices to borrowers for their transactions i,e
issue,return, overdue,etc..
