Unable to send mail with Gitlab (Nginx, postfix installed)

Posted October 23, 2014 26.2k views

Hi I have the basic configuration of gitlab (using sendmail) and I setted a postfix on my debian server.

I can send mail with command line but it doesn’t works with Gitlab. When it should send mail I never receive it. I also tried with google smtp and it doesnt work either.

Thanks for your help.

xmax54, I found the solution to my problem - the file config/initializers/smtp_settings.rb.sample was overriding the delivery method to :smtp because of the line if Rails.env.production?.

  • Hey, I am curious, what did you do so that gitlab can send mails? I have the same problem. Should I delete the line you’d mentioned?
