Trouble getting email setup.

Added by Josh Midkiff over 7 years ago

I cannot seem to get redmine to allow me "access" to the Admin -> Settings -> Email Notification screen.

I keep getting:

Email delivery is not configured, and notifications are disabled.
Configure your SMTP server in config/configuration.yml and restart the application to enable them.

I have tried every combination of the email_delivery config I could think of. Single quotes, double quotes, tls, enable_starttls_auto, etc. I did run it through a YAML validator, everything seems fine in it.

I am running http://www.helicontech.com/articles/installing-redmine-on-windows-in-production/ which seems to run fine. I have restarted the app pool, IIS, and actually rebooted the server. No effect.

I attached my configuration.yml. I am really at a loss here, I was up all night trying to figure this out.

Try this:

production:
  delivery_method: :smtp
  smtp_settings:
    tls:true
    enable_starttls_auto: true
    address: "smtp.gmail.com" 
    port: "587" 
    domain: "smtp.gmail.com" 
    authentication: :plain
    user_name: "email@gmail.com" 
    password: "password" 

Mind the quotes, enable_starttls_auto: true, authentication: :plain and the removed email_delivery:

Tried that, restarted the app pool, still didnt work. Its almost like I'm missing an extra config somewhere.

What version of redmine do you use?

I stuggled with this for weeks, till I upgraded to the latest redmine 2.2.0. All I had to do was change my configuration.yml. I removed all lines I didn't need. So only the lines above were present.

It's 2.1.2.stable. I can take everything out of that config and try it again.

Let us know if it worked or not.

"Email notifications" tab of administration -> settings is still disabled.
