Introducing NGL Messaging Server: Email solution for libraries behind HTTP proxies

Respected Patron,
Greetings from NewGenLib Open Source.

Is your library server behind a HTTP Proxy? And because of this you are unable to send SMSs and Emails to your users. If yes, NGL Open Source has developed a solution for you. You only need to upgrade your NGL installation to 3.0.4 Release 1. No other installation is required.

Introducing NGL Messaging Server
HTTP proxies like Squid (most widely used proxy server for Internet distribution) do not allow Java applications to access SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) servers. Hence your NGL server cannot send Emails to your users via SMTP server. This includes Google’s Gmail SMTP Server. Therefore NGL development team has developed a NGL Messaging Server to solve this problem.
You must configure your NGL installation to specify the NGL Messaging Server details. Once this is done, NGL sends all the Emails to the NGL Messaging Server through HTTP. The NGL Messaging Server in turn dispatches these Emails to your users through SMTP protocol.

Should I do any installation on the library server?
No additional installation is required on the library server. You only need to change your ENV_VAR.txt(Environment Variables) file to tell the NGL installation that it needs to use the NGL Messaging Server. However please note that you must be using NGL Version 3.0.4 Release 1 to use this feature. If you have already downloaded 3.0.4 R1, there is patch available as a nightly build.

Is there any costs involved to use the NGL Messaging Server?
NGL Messaging service is provided free of cost to the NGL User Community. Its absolutely free to use.
