I was unable to get email to be sent via Archiva using the file (located in $ARCHIVA_BASE/conf). The ONLY way I
was able to get this to work was by updating the jetty.xml file (located
in $ARCHIVA_BASE/conf) with the updated smtp host information. From what
I read, you should be able to set any SMTP related values in the This doesn't seem to be the case. Some email
settings could be specified in the file but it
doesn't seem consistant.

I have included a sample file that I was using, with zero success.

We also noticed that if there are exceptions being throw from Archiva,
which I assume there are when the email setting are configured properly,
we aren't seeming them in ANY logs (archiva, stderrout, wrapper ...

Also when looking at the (located at
main/resources/org/codehaus/plexus/redback/ I
see that there is a property named 'email.jndiSessionName' what is its
purpose? I was trying to decode its purpose but I couldn't come to a
good conclusion.

I went created the user via the registration process. I also attempted
to resend the validation mail via the 'User Management' page on Archiva.

Hi Michael,

Since Redback 1.1, validation mails are no longer sent for users created
a User/System admin. It is now only sent if the user went through the
registration process.
Hmm, did you try re-sending the validation mail?
