@blue-cat I imagine this best being accomplished through the reputation system. If one were to create a category called "Introductions" that did not require any reputation to post, but all other categories required some reputation, then new users would only have the option to post in the "Introductions" category. However, from what I can tell there is not currently the option to require minimum reputation before posting to categories. I hope someone has a more usable answer.
can't send emails
I cant send any emails with the local emailer. I keep getting this error:
filter:email.send, 139769591261248:error:140770FC:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:unknown protocol:s23_clnt.c:769:
Any suggestions? I tried https://community.nodebb.org/topic/4323/emailer-via-local-smtp-and-ssl-tls but still no go.
Thanks and kind regards,
@Adam-Poniatowski I would recommend using an emailer plugin instead of local emailer. Try one of these. All of them provide free tiers.
nodebb-plugin-emailer-mailjet nodebb-plugin-emailer-sendgrid nodebb-plugin-emailer-mailgun
I think I found the problem. My IP has been blocked by their spam filters (microsoft). I had it delisted now and I will see where it goes.
I hope its that...
You will have this problem with all email providers if you use local emailer. They just assume it's spam.
nope... still the same issue
Do you have a proper SPF and DKIM configuration for your domain? It is becoming more difficult to effectively send email to major providers without those in place.
I tried the other emailer (nodebb-plugin-emailer-ssl-smtp) and that works... weird, as I had the local emailer working before, when I had it on my freebsd machine (now centos).
Thanks for trying, it is much appreciated
