Lowering configuration.example.yml confusion
When installing Redmine and uncomment example outgoing stmp settings at configuration.example.yml then user will get into annoying trobule, where default settings will overwrite uncommented one above. It took me a bit time to figure out why email delivery does not work.
I created a patch against master where I moved examples below default settings, thus users will not get easely into this kind of trouble again.
This issue is common (google: "Redmine getaddrinfo: Name or service not known") but not all solutions will point into correct solution, most will talk about DNS resolving etc.

If the examples are uncommented below as proposed in the patch, all the settings in previous production "section" will be overwritten. So it doesn't look like a better option. Instead, I think that the production key should be removed in the examples to prevent that, see r13402.
