Mail configuration with server_environment

This module allows to configure the incoming and outgoing mail servers
using the `server_environment` mechanism: you can then have different
mail servers for the production and the test environment.


To install this module, you need to have the server_environment module
installed and properly configured.


With this module installed, the incoming and outgoing mail servers are
configured in the `server_environment_files` module (which is a module
you should provide, see the documentation of `server_environment` for
more information).

In the configuration file of each environment, you may first use the
sections `[outgoing_mail]` and `[incoming_mail]` to configure the
default values respectively for SMTP servers and the IMAP/POP servers.

Then for each server, you can define additional values or override the
default values with a section named `[outgoing_mail.resource_name]` or
`[incoming_mail.resource_name]` where "resource_name" is the name of
the server.

Exemple of config file :

smtp_host =
smtp_port = 587
smtp_user =
smtp_pass =
smtp_encryption = ssl

smtp_user = odoo
smtp_pass = odoo

server =
port = 110
type = pop
is_ssl = 0
attach = 0
original = 0
user =
password = uas1ohV0

You will need to create 2 records in the database, one outgoing mail
server with the field `name` set to "odoo_smtp_server1" and one
incoming mail server with the field `name` set to "odoo_pop_mail1".


Once configured, Odoo will read the mail servers values from the
configuration file related to each environment defined in the main
Odoo file.
