Summary0034499: Test email working

An email server test with error feedback would be quite useful in mantisbt/admin/check/ during setup

When I was testing, the only feedback I had was whether or not an email arrived (and as a noob, I wasn't quite sure which actions would trigger an email and to whom in the default setup)

TagsNo tags attached.

Is page <yourMantisUTL>/admin tab Email Queue what you expect?

Oh, I got the email working.

This is just a feature request for a test for email being sent correctly (which I realise may be non-trivial).

I just found it a bit hard to get clues when it was not working.

Useful reading for email configuration troubleshooting

As for implementing logic to test and diagnose email configuration, quite frankly that would be a lot of work and IMO not worth the effort.

You can generally get a good idea of what is wrong, simply by setting $g_log_level = LOG_EMAIL | LOG_EMAIL_VERBOSE; and review the log file configured in $g_log_destination.

That is a great link - my apologies for not finding it - maybe make it a sticky if not already, and add a link to the admin page while you're there ?
[please don't think that I thought that email diagnosis is not be a full time job already ! ]
