Hi, I have deployed Orchard on azure and enable Email Messaging module. Enabling says it enables successfully and asks for email settings. I provided it the mail server setting. Strange thing is, User setting does not show me the settings which are dependent on email messaging module (Contact us email address and public site name) and does not show me ("Lost your password") link . Also I have built a module which sends email. This module is not sending email.

Same orchard package works fine and also email on my dev server with same mail server settngs(gmail smtp settings.) But email is not working on azure.

What am i Missing ?

Got it. Windows Azure environment does not allow itself to send email neither it allow to use smtp servers. we need to use a third part emailing service like SendGrid,PostMark etc
