Setting up email
How do you set up email on nodebb? I installed nodedb-plugin-emailer-local, but it doesn't seem to work for V 0.5.2..
but it doesn't seem to work for V 0.5.2..
Can you be a bit more specific? We're usually quite good at diagnosing issues, not so good with Clairvoyance.
Required info, what have you tried? Any errors when running
To take the ease of your server, I'd recommend looking into emailer-mandrill, as they give you a free 12,000 emails per month.
After I activate the plugin and click on Emailer (Local) from the intstalled plugins menu I get a 404:
You seem to have stumbled upon a page that does not exist. Return to the home page."
No errors in the log, but there was this warning:
warn: [plugins/nodebb-plugin-emailer-local] "callbacked" deprecated as of 0.4x. Use asynchronous method instead for hook: filter:admin.header.build
./nodebb dev gave me this warning:
warn: Route requested but not found: /admin/plugins/emailer-smtp
I think that error means that you've installed the wrong emailer plugin. There are two, one works and one doesn't.
I think @psychobunny knows something about this.
@aii the same question I met.looking for help, too.
Follow these steps to get it working
go to extend > plugins
look for Emailer (Mandrill)
install and activate plugin
go to mandrill, generate and copy api key
go to your nodebb > installed plugins > emailer (mandrill)
paste api key and click save
To test email, go to settings > email and then click on send test email
Use the local emailer plugin under the NodeBB name:
npm i nodebb-plugin-emailer-local

So things have changed and now mandrill is shutting down. What emailer alternatives are there?
I recommend SendGrid
We support many via plugins, sendgrid, mailgun, mailjet, postageapp...
