Forum OpenACS Q&A: Acs mail lite 0.2a doesn't seem to work
[07/Jun/2004:18:08:12][19270.3076][-conn:ibr::0] Notice: acs-mail-lite: Email bouncing from firstname.lastname@example.org, mail not sent and deleted from queue
[07/Jun/2004:18:08:12][19270.3076][-conn:ibr::0] Notice: acs_mail_lite::deliver_mail successful Testing from developer support with this:
acs_mail_lite::send -to_addr "email@example.com" -from_addr firstname.lastname@example.org -subject "test please ignore" -body [db_string get_time "select current_timestamp" -default "none"]Yields that error. I have verified that the SendmailBin path is correct (/usr/sbin/sendmail, and have tried with both that and SMTP. Any ideas on how to fix this? I need to have it working before people start getting back on the intranet tomorrow morning.
The problem was that I upgraded using the openacs-5-1-compat tag instead of oacs-5-1. My understanding was packages should be tagged with openacs-5-1-compat, but it appears that's not always the case.
It appears the functionality is busted on the openacs-5-1-compat 'branch', so I'm going to tag it, since the changes seem very minor. I'm also going to bump the package to 0.21a, so that existing installs can upgrade via the package repository.
But I am still having the problem that no mails are send to the site admin (namely myself). Today I also installed the latest dotlrn. Sending mails to "normal" users work, but not to the admin.
I installed the latest .LRN which probably runs on OpenACS 5.0.x The package manager says acs-mail-lite is version 0.1d.
Since acs-mail-lite doesn't send notifications to me as the admin (but to other users), I tried to update to the latest version from cvs which is 0.21a according to acs-mail-lite.info.
mv acs-mail-lite ~/backup/acs-mail-lite.01d
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:mailto:email@example.com:/cvsroot checkout acs-mail-lite
When I look at the package in the package manager, it still reports acs-mail-lite as version 0.1d, although it can't see the older directory any more.
Why is the older version reported?
P.S. After trying I learned that the acs-mail-lite 0.21a doesnt work with .LRN 2.0 at all, so I had to come back to 0.1d. Still curious why the older version was reported from apm after the "upgrade".
And still have the same problem that no mails that are handled by acs-mail-lite are send to the admin. Who knows why?
