Subject [jira] [Updated] (INFRA-8198) Cannot send mails from apache.org addresses / documentation for new committers / Augmentation
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2014 19:13:20 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-8198?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Philipp Ottlinger updated INFRA-8198:
-------------------------------------

    Description: 
(send this via mail to infrastructure@apache.org on 2014.07-23 but did not get any response
yet)

As a newly elected committer I was trying to get my email config
up'n'running in Thunderbird to be able to send from my apache.org
address as stated on
<http://www.apache.org/dev/user-email.html#via-smtp-based-mail-submission-service-recommended>

At the moment I get wrong credentials error messages or Thunderbird
says that the SMTP server rejects any connections.

QUESTIONS
Which credentials do I need to configure SMTP-sending via
people.apache.org?

* Neither 'myname@apache.org' nor 'myname' seems to work as username.
* Which password is necessary LDAP or SSH?

SOLUTION
Could anyone augment the page with a detailed example such as

{pre}
Username: yourid@apache.org
Port: 465
Server: people.apache.org
Method of connection: SSL/TLS
Method of password transfer: encrypted password

Use your SSH password to connect before sending a mail.
{pre}
to help newbies like me.

Thanks for your help
