I had a problem configuring my e-mail setup for redmine. Now it works, but I wonder if the source of the problem might be a bug. As delivery method I want to use sendmail. So, like written in the documentation within config/configuration.yml, I tried the following:

     delivery_method: :sendmail

Sending a test mail did not work and I got this error message after trying: undefined method `[]' for #

Changing the delivery_method to ":async_sendmail" everything works fine. So it seems the method defined by it (perform_delivery_async_sendmail) is even needed if async_sendmail is not used. After having started with ":async_sendmail" once, I can use ":sendmail" without problems, too.

I can't provide a stacktrace right now, but the above information might be enough to tell if this is a bug at all.

Email notification is drastically rewritten in Redmine 4.0.0 (#26791) and async_smtp delivery method was obsoleted.

Please reopen this issue if you are still experiencing the problem in the latest version of Redmine.
