MailTask keeps failing

I’ve set up the config file this way:

  <bean id="throwCustomExceptionDelegate" class="org.flowable.engine.test.bpmn.event.error.mapError.ThrowCustomExceptionDelegate" />

</beans>

but whenever I run my instance, the following exception is thrown:

EmailException: Sending the email to the following server failed : localhost:1025

I don’t get why it’s sending the email to localhost, aren’t the settings correct? What am I missing?

Are you using Spring Boot?

Searching the doc and looking in the source those values are used as defaults for Spring Boot apps:

Property name Default value Description
flowable.mail.server.host localhost The host of the mail server.
flowable.mail.server.password - The password for the mail server authentication.
flowable.mail.server.port 1025 The port of the mail server.
