Setting up 3.3g Community edition on a windows box and I am trying to setup the SMTP services.

Seems the location of the configuration file to modify has moved.

I have the book Alfresco 3 ecm Imp and it refers to a file tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco/extension/custom-respository.properties
  this file does not exist.

I checked the WIKI http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/E-mail_Configuration
it refer to a <configRoot>/repository.properties
this does exist.

I do find a C:\Alfresco\tomcat\shared\classes\alfresco-global.properties
that contains
#
# Outbound Email Configuration
#————-
#mail.host=
#mail.port=25
#mail.username=anonymous
#mail.password=
#mail.encoding=UTF-8
#mail.from.default=alfresco@alfresco.org
#mail.smtp.auth=false

Would this be the correct file to define my SMTP server ?

Answer Nope
org.springframework.mail.MailSendException: Mail server connection failed; nested exception is javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host: smtp.alfresco.com, port: 25;

So what do I change ?
