Sending emails not working after conversion to 1.0.4 from 0.9.5 using same email.yml

Added by John Pataki over 8 years ago

I'v been using redmine since 0.8 something or other.
I updated to 0.9.6 a while ago and recently upgraded to 1.0.4

For the update to 1.0.4 I followed the instructions on the blog pointed to from this site, including backing up, checking out a new copy of stable release from the repository, and then copying over the database.yml and email.yml file.

Now when trying to send a test email, I get

"An error occurred while sending mail (501 5.1.7 Bad sender address syntax )"

This has been setup all along exactly the same way and I've not modified the email.yml, its the same as it was when it was working under 0.9.6 and prior.

What could be different between the two releases that this would occur?

Correction in body of post - my last redmine was 0.9.5 not 0.9.6

Some notes here

1) I am using rackspace as my email host which is where the SMTP server is for my redmine account
2) My sender email address similar to this: Redmine Projects (no reply)<>
3) I've been using Rails 2.3.8

I compared what I had setup differently between 0.9.5 (and before) and the new 1.0.4 that I checked out as a new working copy from the redmine repository and found I was using this plugin

https://github.com/collectiveidea/action_mailer_optional_tls

I installed this plugin: script/plugin install git://github.com/collectiveidea/action_mailer_optional_tls.git
restarted redmine

Now everything is back in working order.... hmm ok - I thought TLS was already working in Rails 2.3 by default... no?
