Integrate Mailazy with Bitbucket

Setting up Bitbucket Data Center and Server to use your SMTP mail server:

  1. allows Bitbucket to send notifications about events to do with commit discussions, pull requests and repositories. Note that if the mail server fails, notifications will be dropped.
  2. allows Bitbucket to email a link to a newly created user, which the user can use to generate their own password.
  3. allows a user to reset their password if they forget it.

See Supported platforms for the mail clients supported by Bitbucket.
