Email setting (SMTP)

I'm using version 2.1 community. I changed the repository.properties file as suggested by other threads but still got an error. The values are correct since I have other test systems working properly.

In the other system in which is working I also had to modify a bean to add some parameters.

Adding the following to the bean:

<property name="javaMailProperties">
         <props>
            <prop key="mail.smtp.auth">true</prop>
            <prop key="mail.smtp.starttls.enable">true</prop>
         </props>
      </property>

But sadly couldn't figure out where to search if the entry is missing.

Here's the error:

14:29:18,341 ERROR [org.alfresco.repo.action.executer.MailActionExecuter] Failed to send email to [GROUP_EVERYONE]
