Data transfer email

Note: Following feature is available in Enterprise and Ultimate editions only.

DBeaver offers a way to send data exported via Data Transfer by E-Mail.

SMTP profile configuration

First, you will need to add an SMTP profile to send email from. Go to WindowPreferencesGeneralMail and create a new profile.

Parameters Host and Port may depend on the mail service you're using. If service offers both SSL and TLS ports, use the latter one. Gmail, for example, uses host smtp.gmail.com and port 587. An example of configured profile:


Then you can use Test connection button to verify that host and credentials are valid.
