Email Configuration using alfresco-global.properties

Hi

I am on Enterprise Edition 4.1.5, I tried configuring Alfresco to use my smtp server by following the guide
http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Outbound_E-mail_Configuration
and editing alfresco-global.properties with the information as it is shown in alfresco-global.properties.sample

however, upon restarting, I see that Alfresco is still trying to send emails through smtp.example.com. Why is this? Should I be disabling the email subsystem? Why is it not recommended to just change the contents of $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/subsystems/email/OutboundSMTP/outboundSMTP.properties??

Any help is appreciated.
