#2792 closed defect (fixed)

Posting does not work due to SMTP error

Reported by: jouvin@… Owned by: Blackhex
Priority: normal Component: DiscussionPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


I log to Trac using a certificate and my userid appears as :

logged in as /C=FR/O=CNRS/OU=UMR8607/CN=Michel Jouvin/

I am used to ticket notification not working because of this. But with DiscussionPlugin, it leads to a failure to post to a forum with the following error :

Trac detected an internal error:

SMTPRecipientsRefused: {u'': (550, '5.1.1 <>... User unknown')}

It would be nice if the plugin could check the userid looks as a valid email. In particular something like a certificate DN is easy to identify as it contains / and = that are invalid characters in an email adress. It'd be better to be able to parse such a userid and look for emailAddress if present (not necessarily the case) but this should probably be handled by Trac notification system itself.

0.11 branch will have notification as a component so you could disable it.

I suppose it's re-opened by spamer. It's duplicate of #6587 anyway.
