Notification email are not being sent - AGAIN

Notification email are not being sent - AGAIN

Wednesday 23 March 2011 2:33:44 pm - 1 reply


I've searched through this forum for some information about problem I've been experiencing and I still have no clue how to deal with it.

Lets start from the beginning. Workflow and notification emails are not being sent. However, there is no problem with feedback form emails - these work just wright. First I thought that there is something wrong with setting an recipient - please, see this post. But I think that the problem is with something else. To be sure, that the configuration is wright I set whole new eZ Publish 4.4 installation. I created an user (Members group) and also set a workflow for approving content. Then I tried to add some forum reply as a user from Member's group (I didn't receive any email - but I set the approval checkbox in notification settings in Dashboard). After approving awaiting content I published another forum reply as an admin and no notification was sent - earlier I added proper nodes to my notifications as an admin and Member's group user.

Oh, I forgot one important thing. The test was performed after applying this patch.

Below you can see the output generated by CRON

Also, if it helps, you can check PHP configuration of my testing server.

I have no idea how to make it work. Shouldn't it be an out of the box feature? Or maybe there is some problem with server configuration? I can't figure it out by myself so I'm asking you for some help.

I had a similar problem on my site, but uh... I just can't remember what was the sollution... I think it was something misconfigured in the workflow settings of user policies.

Ivan Švogor had the same problem:

So maybe he solved it in the meantime.
