Password policy and System mail from field

Post by holzhannes »


is there a way to increase the minimum password length from 8 to 12?
It would be nice to have TOTP or another 2FA within the App.

Is there a way to change the from address in system emails and set a reply-to address? At the moment password reset emails are send from "webmaster@localhost". ( ... email_host)

Thanks for a short reply.

Hi Holzhannes.

2FA is definitely on our radar. I can't give any estimated time frame/version commitment but it is on the roadmap.

In terms of the system mailer (not mailing profiles), this can be set using the setting DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL either in your config.yml file or in system > settings > django > DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL
Easy to miss as all the other settings start with EMAIL :) - So set that in your config.yml or as an environment variable if you're using docker (MAYAN_DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL) and you're good to go. You can set it in the web-ui and then restart mayan afterwards.

It is not possible to set a different reply-to email than the from email for the system mailer or mailing profile. It will use the "from" field as the reply field once you set that.
