I have tested the situation again my CVSNT version is 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 1: Notify file is empty. This confirmed that the internal mailer is invoked 2: Notify_email contains DEFAULT mail_tpl_01 3: mail_tpl_01 containst the following: From: [email] To: my-email at invalid.com <<---- I have my company email in here Cc: [to_user] <<---- the to_user keyword Subject: CVS Commit to [module] CVSROOT: [repository] Module name: [module] Changes by: [user] ([email]) Date: [date] On host: [hostname] [begin_directory] Directory: [directory] [begin_file] [change_type] [filename] [tag] [old_revision] -> [new_revision] [bugid] [end_file] [end_directory] Log message: [message] ------------------- Now I do receive an email and I get an SMTP error. The email I get was sent to the TO address containing my own hardcoded email address. 4: In the users file I have the following line as 35bsw is my username and my-email at invalid.com is my email (note that I do not put my company email here to prevent from spamming) 35bsw:my-email at invalid.com the [to_user] in the CC field expands to.... 35bsw at invalid.com Expected result for the to_user field was that the email for user 35bsw was looked up and the email of the user was used to replace the [to_user] field. Seems that there is some mismatch in using the users file, the default domain and the keyword substitution. ________________________________ From: Arthur Barrett <arthur.barrett at march-hare.com> To: Bart S <barts2108 at yahoo.co.uk>; cvsnt at cvsnt.org cvsnt downloads at march-hare.com @CVSNT on Twitter CVSNT on Facebook Sent: Sunday, 14 December, 2008 23:52:59 Subject: RE: [cvsnt] How to invoke internal mailer > As far as I remember I *had* to add a line in the notify file > like ALL mail %s To get the internal mailer kicked off... > but that's what I need to retest now If you mean the CVSROOT/notify_email file and if your template is named 'CVSROOT/mail' then yes - as per the documentation, if you mean CVSROOT/notify then no that is not needed for the e-mail trigger. CVSROOT/notify is used for older style integrations like CVSMailer. Whilst the 'API' CVSMailer uses is quite old it is apparently quite a comprehensive package, we never intended the e-mail trigger to be a replacement for CVSMailer - more to provide a 'simpler' (and cross platform) way to get e-mail running quickly and to provide a 'template' for other people to contribute enhancements to.
