I want to use the email function, for example, if someone wants to save the test and restart it after some time, can limesurvey send an email to the user?

I have try some times, limesurvey can save the test, but it didn't send email to me.

How to set the email setting? I haven't install mail server in my server.

Hi,

Without mail server in your server: you need to configure a smtp server.
Look at "Global settings"/Mail

Hi,

manual.limesurvey.org/Optional_settings#Email_Settings

Then you just have to add the port : smtp.gmail.com:465
And i think gmail use SSL or startSSL

You can test the eamil process with creating a survey with token and try to send you an email (even with a empty survey).

If your configuration are OK, you receive the mail.
