Description (last modified by Garth Braithwaite)

Would it be useful to upgrade to the latest Trac. I'm using actual email addresses in the cc: field. I've read somewhere that you could use trac-userids, but according to Kim that doesn't work, let's see if this works.

Utah UDOH IT staff have installed and updated the latest trac version.

Not sure if any of you received the email notification. I did not. If you have, sorry if you are getting more notification, as I noticed the CC remains, and I've not added me to cc.

I have included myself in the cc, and am not getting notified. I'm wondering if there is a configuration issue with the server. I have found the following: a description of Trac Notification - see partial below the trac config file - look under [Notification] these are the configurations that need to be set so notifcation works

Description of Notification, and configuration If it is configured, there is also helpful how-to-debug info under troubleshooting

Notification is disabled by default in trac.ini

Configuring SMTP Notification ¶ Configuration Options These are the available options for the [notification] section in trac.ini. •smtp_enabled: Enable email notification. •smtp_server: SMTP server used for notification messages. •smtp_user: (since 0.9) User name for authentication SMTP account. •smtp_password: (since 0.9) Password for authentication SMTP account. •smtp_from: Email address to use for Sender-headers in notification emails. •smtp_replyto: Email address to use for Reply-To-headers in notification emails. •smtp_default_domain: (since 0.10) Append the specified domain to addresses that do not contain one. Fully qualified addresses are not modified. The default domain is appended to all username/login for which an email address cannot be found from the user settings. •smtp_always_cc: List of email addresses to always send notifications to. Typically used to post ticket changes to a dedicated mailing list. •smtp_always_bcc: (since 0.10) List of email addresses to always send notifications to, but keeps addresses not visible from other recipients of the notification email •always_notify_reporter: Always send notifications to any address in the reporter field. •always_notify_owner: (since 0.9) Always send notifications to the address in the owner field. •always_notify_updater: (since 0.10) Always send a notification to the updater of a ticket. •use_public_cc: (since 0.10) Addresses in To: (owner, reporter) and Cc: lists are visible by all recipients (default is Bcc: - hidden copy). •use_short_addr: (since 0.10) Enable delivery of notifications to addresses that do not contain a domain (i.e. do not end with @<>).This option is useful for intranets, where the SMTP server can handle local addresses and map the username/login to a local mailbox. See also smtp_default_domain. Do not use this option with a public SMTP server. •mime_encoding: (since 0.10) E-mail notifications are always sent in 7-bit mode. This option allows to select the MIME encoding scheme. Supported values:

◦base64: default value, works with any kind of content. May cause some issues with touchy anti-spam/anti-virus engines. ◦qp or quoted-printable: best for european languages (more compact than base64), not recommended for non-ASCII text (less compact than base64)

◦none: no encoding. Use with plain english only (ASCII). E-mails with non-ASCII chars won't be delivered.

Either smtp_from or smtp_replyto (or both) must be set, otherwise Trac refuses to send notification mails.

There are some decisions to be made as to how to configure...

And the how to install, and any issues going from say .10 to .12 are discussed here
