Subject Problems setting up mail (Tomcat)
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2008 22:48:11 GMT
Hi there,

I've just downloaded and installed Roller 4.0.


- Debian 4
- Tomcat 6
- Java 6
- Postfix (MTA)

The mail-properties in look like:


Obviously, is a replacement for my real hostname which I
don't want to post in public, same goes for username / password.

When I change to the console and change the user to john ("su john"),
I can send email using the "mail"-command (actually it's "nail", but
that shouldn't matter here).
What I'm trying to say is: Mail is working, and user john can send mail.

However, Roller will not accept the configuration but is throwing the
following exception:

WARN  2008-12-12 23:26:26,392 MailUtil:sendEmailNotification -
Exception sending comment notification mail
       at javax.mail.Service.connect(
       at javax.mail.Service.connect(
       at javax.mail.Service.connect(
       at javax.mail.Transport.send0(
       at javax.mail.Transport.send(

[ rest of the stacktrace deleted ]

I've got really no idea what's going wrong here. I was already
wondering if I should setup a JNDI-mail-session, but read in Google
that Roller cannot handle that, either.

Could somebody please shed some light what I am missing here?


just because your paranoid, doesn't mean they're not after you...
