The SMTP server I'm using requires to login before using it.
However I couldn't find any options for the trac.ini file to allow the use of an username and password for the smtp server.

oops! I forgot to say that currently when there is an error sending the mail Trac reports it on the page. I think it'll be better to just issue an error/warning in the Log file.

The patch smtp_login.diff adds SMTP login. This is untested code, but should demonstrate how the approach. To use SMTP authentication after applying these changes, you'll need to add the following to your config:

smtp_user = yourloginname
smtp_password = yourpassword

Note that this stores the password in cleartext in the configuration file. Of course [wiki:TracIni trac.ini}}} should be protected using file system permissions anyway.

It works like a charm

Resolution: fixed

Fixed in [1185].

(Note that the original patch contained a typo… smptp → smtp)

comment:5 by anonymous, 15 years ago

actually the patch should read "smtp_user", not "smptp_user" (same for password)
