Simple Parse Server SMTP Email Adapter

With this adapter you can send email for reset password and email verification in parse with SMTP access and custom templates, I am doing methods for support email verification, and templates for reset password pages :)


Install npm module in your parse server project

$ npm install --save simple-parse-smtp-adapter


In the configuration of your parse server you must pass simple-parse-smtp-adapter as email adapter and set your SMTP access for send emails also the path to your jade template and its less file.

This is an example using parse server as express module:

"use strict";
const Express = require('express');
const ParseServer = require('parse-server').ParseServer;
const app = Express();
const APP_PORT = 1337;
let api = new ParseServer({
    appName: "Parse Test",
    appId: "12345",
    masterKey: "abcde12345",
    serverURL: "http://localhost:1337/parse",
    publicServerURL: "http://localhost:1337/parse",
    databaseURI: "mongodb://user:pass@host:27017/parse",
    port: APP_PORT,
    //This is the config for email adapter 
    emailAdapter: {
        module: "simple-parse-smtp-adapter",
        options: {
            fromAddress: 'your@sender.address',
            user: '',
            password: 'AwesomePassword',
            host: '',
            isSSL: true, //True or false if you are using ssl 
            port: 465, //SSL port or another port 
            name: 'your domain name', //  optional, used for identifying to the server  
            //Somtimes the user email is not in the 'email' field, the email is search first in 
            //email field, then in username field, if you have the user email in another field 
            //You can specify here 
            emailField: 'username', 
            templates: {
                //This template is used only for reset password email 
                resetPassword: {
                    //Path to your template 
                    template: __dirname + '/views/email/reset-password',
                    //Subject for this email 
                    subject: 'Reset your password'
                verifyEmail: {
                    template: __dirname + '/views/email/verify-email',
                    subject: 'Verify Email'
 * Parse Server endpoint
app.use('/parse', api);
app.listen(APP_PORT, function () {
    console.log(`Parse Server Ready and listening on port ${APP_PORT}`);


The path you pass to the email adapter must be a directory and not a file, this path must contain 2 mandatory files html.jade and style.less you can do your template as you like with the CSS rules that emails supports in the template you can use 3 variables:

  • appName //This is the name of your parse app
  • link //This is the link for reset the password
  • user //This is a Parse object with the current user, so you can use any field in your User class of parse for example the user name #{user.get('username')}
