It works for me now. May be it was a temporary problem…

comment:2 Changed 10 years ago by peter@…

  • Milestone changed from 0.8.1 to 0.8.2
  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened
  • Version changed from 0.8 to 0.8.1

Just set everything up, and I'm seeing this here as well.

To confirm:

The email address in smtp_always_cc (known good) never receives any email.

If you then place that address in the CC: field, email is sent properly.

Trac 0.8.1, Fedora Core 3, Python 2.3.4.

This is a big issue - without email notification, a bug tracking system looses a lot of value.

When first setting up our trac installations I encountered this problem but it was always traceable back to a cached trac.ini file. Restarting the web server would always fix it.

Bouncing the webserver didn't do it. smtp_always_cc is still not working.

Note: Even though I entered my email address when posting the bug, I never received anything about my initial post, or any of the responses to it. Shouldn't that be enabled here?

Hardcoding my address in the CC field so I get further responses.

Can you attach your trac.ini file here? I have several projects running on 0.8.1 with smtp_always_cc on, so I do know that it generally works.

Added the trac.ini. For the record, I just re-started apache again, and it still isn't sending mail.

Additionally, explicitely adding the email address in smtp_always_cc to the Cc: field does work - so it's not a general mail issue.

  • Milestone 0.8.2 deleted

As this feature does seem to work for many other users, and I don't know where the problem might be, this ticket should not block the release of 0.8.2.

I've been struggeling with email notification for a while too, but it works now (even with correct formatting ;-)

Anyway, could you try to enable logging by putting

log_type = file

in your trac.ini? It should then log stuff to the file trac.log in your trac environment directory. I presume an exception will be reported there, if for whatever reason the mail could not be sent.

Unable to reproduce. At the very least, we need the DEBUG log output.
