Mailing Configuration with Django SMTP Backend

Post by calvinsug »

Hi guys, i'm a new user for Python Django and Mayan-edms.

Basically, i tried to test the mailing system. First, i added a new mailing profile from System -> Setup -> Mailing Profiles. Second, i choose django SMTP backend. Third, here is what i set up in this form:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1TfcNL ... 417pfp7gIh
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1yj_Oj ... VSaGWsqAxj

from that configuration, i click the test button in this url: http://localhost/#/mailer/user_mailers/
and after i filled recipient's email address, the response is Internal Server Error.
What am i missing here to activate the mail system? What i suspicious here are the username and password for the SMTP server, but i don't think i have the username or password for the SMTP server, so i just filled it blank.

nb: I'm running mayan-edms using docker-compose up command in docker folder for the LAN and i just plan to using it in my Local Area Network.

===UPDATED====
When i see the logs from my terminal which running the docker compose-up
i see this logs:
[2019-10-04 15:29:39,634: ERROR/MainProcess] Task mayan.apps.mailer.tasks.task_send_document[3058e0fd-aab4-42bf-aca4-4a25d4b2e133] raised unexpected: error(99, 'Cannot assign requested address')

the email is correct, just confused what does it mean?

how do i know my local smtp is working?

btw i have updated the configuration to user gmail settings:

EMAIL_HOST = 'smtp.gmail.com'
EMAIL_HOST_USER = 'your-username@gmail.com'
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD = 'your-password'
EMAIL_PORT = 587
EMAIL_USE_TLS = True


with this configuration, the error has changes to:
SMTPAuthenticationError: (535, '5.7.8 Username and Password not accepted. Learn more at\n5.7.8 https://support.google.com/mail/?p=BadCredentials z13sm14016318pfg.172 - gsmtp')

This is weird because the credentials is correct and i have turn on the 'Allow less secure apps'
https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps

based on this advise: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/165 ... gmail-smtp

Hi,

I have installed Mayan EDMS in my ubuntu server using docker container. Software is great but I haven't been able to send emails. Could you explain what you have done in more detail to make it work?
