Wizard -> Email setup - cannot make it work
« on: July 05, 2015, 02:38:12 pm »
Hi all, hope you're all well.

I am looking at setting up an email account with Gmail on LinuxMCE, but not having much luck in that I don't receive the test email. I have attached my settings. I have tried manual setup as well. As you can see the "Response:" from sending a test message is blank.

From the wiki this looks straightforward, and is known to be working in 1004 (I will get round to upgrading at some point...). Any pointers would be much appreciated!

Cheers,
Matt.

My money would be on Google doing something 'intelligent' which screws you.

Just checked, and it doesn't seem to be gmail related. See if a ticket exists, and if not, open one up.

I've checked out how things were setup, and (probably) fixed a couple of things.

If you want to testdrive the changes, please just replace all calls to postmap with /usr/sbin/postmap in file /usr/pluto/bin/Configure_Postfix_interactive.sh

There will be a new boot scripts package for 1204.

nothing like working in opposite directions.

Well, I would providing a quick fix not working in opposite directions. But maybe I am just misunderstanding.
