Webio email vs GitLab

I wasted far more time than originally expected on simple email-notifications configuration for GitLab. I use Webio hosting and somehow following part of config file (at “/etc/gitlab/gitlab.rb") is the only one that works. Hopefully it will be useful to you, too.

gitlab_rails['smtp_enable'] = true
gitlab_rails['smtp_address'] = "poczta.webio.pl"
gitlab_rails['smtp_port'] = 465
gitlab_rails['smtp_user_name'] = "xyz@codetitans.pl"
gitlab_rails['smtp_password'] = "xyz"
gitlab_rails['smtp_domain'] = "codetitans.pl"
gitlab_rails['smtp_authentication'] = "login"
gitlab_rails['smtp_enable_starttls_auto'] = true
gitlab_rails['smtp_tls'] = true
gitlab_rails['smtp_openssl_verify_mode'] = 'peer'
gitlab_rails['smtp_ca_path'] = "/etc/ssl/certs"
gitlab_rails['smtp_ca_file'] = "/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt"
gitlab_rails['gitlab_email_display_name'] = 'CodeTitans'
gitlab_rails['gitlab_email_from'] = 'xyz@codetitans.pl'
gitlab_rails['gitlab_email_reply_to'] = 'xyz@codetitans.pl'
