[EP-tech] Re: email configuration help on smtp with login using tls or ssl

Hi Fatih,

can we have more detail on your system installation?
if you are using a debian derived linux distribution then there is a
bug with ssmtp described here:
after you have added your web user to the mail group, you have then to
change one line in: ${EPRINTS_HOME}/lib/syscfg.d/invocations.pl and

'sendmail' => '$(sendmail) -oi -t -odb --', (around line 6)


'sendmail' => '$(sendmail) -oi -t -',

This worked for me on my ubuntu 11.10 server.

Hope it helps,
