Subject: redmine: issue with email notification
Date: 2010-07-26 01:13:04 GMT
Package: redmine
Version: 0.9.5-1
Severity: normal


I use Redmine with exim4 for email notification. Exim4 is ok because I can send emails through the "mail" command.
when trying to send a test email from Redmine, I have this strange error message on the web page (nothing in
the exim and Redmine logs) : 
An error occurred while sending mail (501 Syntactically invalid HELO argument(s) )

I have a really simple email.yml : 
  delivery_method: :smtp
    address: "localhost"
    port: 25

My destination email is simple: carl.chenet <at>
My emission email addresse is also simple: root <at>

Here's a simpler configuration that works :

  delivery_method: :sendmail

It does not work with localhost because exim4 rejects :
rejected HELO from [] U=www-data

It is a problem with exim4 config, not with redmine.
