E-mail Failure

I've been developing a tendenci site, and am now trying to scale it up. All seemed to have gone well but e-mail functionality has been lost.

I can send e-mail fine from a python manage.py shell using;

>>>from django.core.mail import send_mail
>>>send_mail('Subject line', 'Message Body', 'tester@YOURHOST.com', ['YOUREMAIL@somehost.com'], fail_silently=False)

But when i try and send a newsletter from webbrowser it states

"Email relay is not configured properly. Newsletter cannot be sent."

Is there a common error in the settings that prevents the site from sending mail when django can?

Hi Iain,

The newsletter uses separate settings for email. Please check if you have the following settings setup in your conf/local_settings.py.

NEWSLETTER_EMAIL_HOST = '<email-host>'
NEWSLETTER_EMAIL_HOST_USER = '<email-host-user>'
NEWSLETTER_EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = '<email-host-password>'

Thanks, Jenny

I'll check if we have that documented and update the doc if not.

Thanks -all sorted.

Is it also worth putting the above in the settings file just # it out (just another prompt to add the settings in)

Glad this is resolved. Adding all of the challenges of email delivery to one giant help file here:
