In the event you missed them, I took a couple stabs at some email tutorials. The intent was to provide enough understanding to get you pointed in the right directions rather than get 'er done copy/pasta recipes. Hence, they may or may not be the droids you're looking for:
UNSOLVED digest, emails not sent
I am starting a new community with NodeBB
I have configured Weekly digest by default.
I have also configured the email plugin, so that it is sent via smtp.
Email is working just fine, from settings test, and for invitation workflows.
However, I noticed that the digest emails were not sent.
I can see in the logs the following message:
30/4 12:00:00  - info: [user/jobs] Digest (week) scheduling completed. 17 email(s) sent.
however, there is no trace of the emails, not even an attempt to connect to the smtp server.
I did straight after a test with settings/email and email is working.
What could be going on here?
Is the digest functionality compatible with all email plugins? could that be problem?
same issue - any answers?
@joes what email plugin are you using, or what is your email setup in the ACP?
This should give the real number of emails sent, right now the
17is just the number of users who have their digest frequency set to
week, if there are no notifications or topics the email isn't sent at all. Maybe that is the issue?
@pitaj thanks - it turns out that the emails are being sent to registered users - however for some reason I am excluded from the list (as administrator).
@joes do you have digests turned on in your user settings?
@pitaj ah that was it - that must have been set before I selected the weekly digest by default setting.
