I've installed postfix as my smtp server and it works fine, cuz I can send e-mails, for example by typing:

sendmail mail@mail.com

and e-mail is delivered corectly. But now I would like that redmine would send notifications to the users. That's my redmine installation info:

Redmine version                2.5.2.stable
Ruby version                   1.9.3-p547 (2014-05-14) [x86_64-linux]
Rails version                  3.2.19
Environment                    production
Database adapter               Mysql2
Subversion                     1.8.8
Git                            1.9.1
Redmine plugins:
no plugin installed

And the configuration.yml:

# Outgoing emails configuration (see examples above)
delivery_method: :sendmail
port: 25
domain: dev.my-domain.org
authentication: :login
user_name: ""
password: ""

After changes of yml file I've restarted apache every time of course. But all the time I'm getting following error when trying to open notifications config page:

Email delivery is not configured, and notifications are disabled.

Configure your SMTP server in config/configuration.yml and restart the application to enable them.

How to deal with it?


Did you check if your config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries is true in config/environment.rb?

    Yes I did, it was set to false, but I switched it to true. – b4rt3kk Nov 7 '14 at 12:29

After spending some time without understanding why sending option is disabled, I found that setting config.action_mailer.perform_deliveries to True did the trick!

You have to restart all, not only Apache. I did see this issue and i tried with "Restart All"
