Mail not sent from redmine

Added by gaurabmani shrestha about 11 years ago

I have configured my redmine with gmail smtp server. The when i test the test email by clicking in the "Send Email" from email notification section i get the following message "An error occurred while sending mail (execution expired)".
I have set the configs in production.rb as

#config.action_mailer.logger = nil
config.log_level = :debug
config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries = false

Set the email.yml as below
production:
delivery_method: :smtp
smtp_settings:
tls: true
address: "smtp.gmail.com"
port: '587'
domain: "smtp.gmail.com"
authentication: :plain
user_name: ""
password: "****"

development:
delivery_method: :smtp
smtp_settings:
tls: true
address: "smtp.gmail.com"
port: '587'
domain: "smtp.gmail.com"
authentication: :plain
user_name: ""
password: "****"

test:
delivery_method: :test

Below if the part of login file from production.log

You can't expect redmine to be able to send mails if you tell rails not to send mails :-)

Thanks Felix for the correction, since iam new to redmine not so friendly with it's configs.

I changed it to true and restarted the application and the same problem exists. It takes some time when i press the link "Send a test mail " link then after some time it displays "An error occurred while sending mail (execution expired)"

Do you also find anything wrong with the log file generated also are there any tips so that i can trace the source of the issue.

Try not quoting the port in your config file, it might be that some point in the chain doesn't take strings as port arguments.

Anyway, your error could be due to a number of things: can your redmine server access gmail, or is there a firewall in between, are the routes correct, is your ruby/rails recent enough that it can do TLS, …?

How can i test that my redmine server can access the gmail?, i have installed the latest redmine version.

Try telnet smtp.gmail.com 587 from the server your redmine is installed on.
