My server works well as-is, with everything set up except for the email server. The problem is, when I add to seahub_settings.py the following lines:
EMAIL_HOST = xxx.xxx.com # smpt server EMAIL_HOST_USER = '' # username and domain – empty EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = '' # password – empty EMAIL_PORT = 25 DEFAULT_FROM_EMAIL = EMAIL_HOST_USER SERVER_EMAIL = EMAIL_HOST_USER
seahub won’t restart at all. I even tried adding “EMAIL_USE_TLS = False”, then “EMAIL_USE_TLS = True”. According to what I’ve read on the internet so far, misconfigured email settings should only cause failiure to send emails. not preventing the whole server from starting.
I’ve also checked to see that i can telnet from my server to that email host on that port.
Any advice on how to proceed?
