Commento not able to send mails



  • Hello o/
    Sadly Commento can not send mails, i am not sure if it is due to cloudron or commento itself. The Log says:

    I would appreciate any help!



  • This should definitely work. In fact, @nebulon submitted a patch to commento just to make email sending work which I believe is part of the Cloudron package already - https://gitlab.com/commento/commento/merge_requests/88 . I will let @nebulon comment



  • Hey Girish,
    thanks for the response. I'm excited to hear from you guys @girish + @nebulon !
    As for now, i reinstalled the app and it still does not work.



  • I just did a verification on my instance and it can send emails as such (already the initial user-registration requires that to work).
    Not sure how you triggered

    Nov 19 13:45:54 2019/11/19 13:45:54 [ERROR] smtp_owner_reset_hex.go:19 smtpOwnerResetHex(): cannot send reset email: gomail: could not send email 1: gomail: invalid address "=?UTF-8?q?XXXXXXXXXXXX<post@XXXXXXX.XX>?=": mail: expected single address, got "?="
    

    But something does look odd with that email address. Does the address by any chance contain special characters, which may break something in commento?



  • Hey @nebulon
    no I don't think that the adress does contain any special characters. I just exchanged the complete adress with "xxx..." for privacy reasons.
    It is a complete normal email adress, with characters from a-z and the TLD is .cc
    It is also the first email being registered in this instance, right after the setup.

    Just for control - i will reinstall the app and try another emailadress, one which is hosted at protonmail.com and report back.
    o/



  • Report back;
    It is not an issue with the email adress, it is the name.
    In the Name is a Umlaut which causes the error.

    So it is kind of solved.



  • Reporting back;
    Tried several things now, Umlauts in generel do not work at commento signup forms.
    Opened an Issue on Gitlab.



  • Thanks for reporting upstream. https://gitlab.com/commento/commento/issues/240 for anyone looking for the bug report.
