  "driver" => "smtp",
  "host" => "",
  "port" => 2525,
  "from" => array(
      &quot;address&quot; => &quot;<a href="/cdn-cgi/l/email-protection">[email&nbsp;protected]</a>&quot;,
      &quot;name&quot; => &quot;Example&quot;
  &quot;username&quot; => &quot;username here&quot;,
  &quot;password&quot; => &quot;password here&quot;,
  &quot;sendmail&quot; => &quot;/usr/sbin/sendmail -bs&quot;,
