If you removed node_modules then you need to reinstall it using npm i nodebb-plugin-emailer-mandrill.
The reason it doesn't show up in acp plugin list is because of the latest changes to nbbpm. See here for details.
Hello everybody, this is my first post in here. I just finished installing Nodebd system in a Digitalocean cloud server and when i hit Setting > Email > Send Test Email i get this error "Spawn sendmail enoemt" does anybody knows why and how to fix it?
sendmail installed for default email settings
@frissdiegurke How do I do that?
Assuming you're using ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install sendmail Keep in mind that this will be a private mailing server, so some email provider might block incoming mails from you. I'm not very into this stuff, so not sure about details.
@hnahli you can try one of these plugins which use 3rd party email servers. they offer a free tier.
@pichalite I just registred for a free trial with mailjet how do i integrated or configure the plugin i just installed for them?
@hnahli that has nothing to do with what you are trying to do. After you install and activate the plugin
nodebb-plugin-emailer-mailjet you will see an option for Mailjet under ACP -> Plugins menu. You will find instructions there.
@pichalite I am afraid that i dont see the option you are talking about
@hnahli did you activate the plugin and restart nodebb after that?
ACP (Admin control Panel)
@pichalite Got it I didnt know that i have to restart nodebb to activate the plugin.
it is working now thanks
@pichalite everything seem to be working but i am not getting confirmation emails. what could be the problem?
Does your mailjet account list any received emails (https://app.mailjet.com/stats )?
@frissdiegurke it is working now I just had to validate my domain with mailjet. The Nodebb installed and running on 0.0.0.0:4567 but the confirmation link sent without specifying the port #. How do i fix that?
Check your config.json for the
@pichalite What if I want to use a different email marketing system than the ones you listed such iContact or Aweber for example, how do i do the integration?
@hnahli if they provide an API then you will have to create a plugin similar to the ones listed.
