07:02 bigbrovar Hi guys, I am trying to get email notification to work with koha3.4.1 nullmail is configured as thus and /usr/share/perl5/Mail/ is configured thus
07:02 wahanui Hmm.  No matches for that, bigbrovar.
07:02 bg you'll get to see the best dog beach ever though rangi
07:02 bigbrovar but still cant get mail notification to work

07:03 bigbrovar I observed that in " /usr/share/perl5/Mail/" under the mail config there is no way to add authentication details for smtp.
07:04 bigbrovar is there a good doc that covers configuration of email notification for koha?
07:05 bg bigbrovar: do you have a cronjob set for it?
07:06 bigbrovar hmm nope, but I read while googling that email notification should work even when a crob is not set
07:06 bg yeah like sending carts and stuff
07:06 bg have you tried emailing yourself from the command line?
07:06 bigbrovar thing is our koha is not yet in use so I am just testing to be sure evrything works before launch
07:07 bigbrovar hmm how do I do that with nullmailer?
07:07 bigbrovar bg: btw did u see the config I pastebin?
07:07 bg sorry I don't know nullmailer
07:08 bigbrovar are there in other
07:08 bigbrovar ok how does the whole email notification thing work with koha?
07:08 NurAhammad joined #koha
07:08 bigbrovar I need to configure an MTA for the koha server and also edit " /usr/share/perl5/Mail/" ?
07:09 bigbrovar from what I read I could use any mta from postfix to sendmail or nullmail
07:09 bg ummm..  I think you need to search on how to set up an email server for your linux box
07:10 bigbrovar ok so once that is set up I would also edit " /usr/share/perl5/Mail/" ?
07:10 bg you shouldn't need to edit that
07:10 bg basically you want to set your config files only
07:11 bigbrovar oh ok.. yeah I saw somewhere that I need to add my smpt parameters to " /usr/share/perl5/Mail/"

12:27 jcamins Still better than here.
12:29 cait hi jcamins :)
12:35 jcamins Good morning.
12:42 bigbrovar Hi guys, I am trying to get email notification to koha to work. I have a working MTA on the koha server working using esmtp . I am able to send mails to myself from the server. anything else I should do?
12:43 magnuse cait: sorry, running to and from. bod� isn't too shabby today - the sun is almost shining and the temperature is very pleasant. been out shopping, should start working...
12:43 magnuse hiya jcamins and bigbrovar
12:43 jcamins Hi, magnuse and bigbrovar!
12:44 bigbrovar magnuse: jcamins: Hi guys :)
12:44 jcamins bigbrovar: that should be it.
12:45 cait bigbrovar: have you scheduled the cronjobs?
12:46 bigbrovar jcamins: well notification is not working. cait: yes I have the cronjobs schuduled
12:46 cait what's the status of the messages in cour message_queue table?
12:46 bigbrovar echo "test" | sendmail works though on the koha server
12:50 bigbrovar cait: let me check
12:53 bigbrovar cait: am sorry please how do check the status in message_queue table? am on phpmyadmin page now and checking the message_queue but don't know what to lookout for
12:55 bigbrovar a new koha account user should receive email notification right? I just created a test account and still haven't gotten any email regarding that
12:56 cait the status column
12:56 jcamins bigbrovar: you have to enable that.
12:56 cait yep
12:56 cait and add a password
13:00 bigbrovar jcamins: I have it enabled under systempreference/patron
13:00 bigbrovar set it to send email to the home email
13:00 jcamins bigbrovar: hm.
13:01 bigbrovar read somewhere I have to also edit /usr/share/perl5/Mail/ with my smtp parameters, is this true?
13:02 semarie joined #koha
13:03 bigbrovar for what its work under message status in phpmyadmin it reads as pending (under the default )
13:03 bigbrovar for what its worth*
13:03 jcamins bigbrovar: try manually running process_message_queue.
13:03 jcamins Manually update a pm? That doesn't sound right at all.
13:08 cait no, it doesn't
13:10 cait have you edited the file?
13:13 jcamins bigbrovar: if the status is listed as pending, that means Koha hasn't even tried to send the messages, so probably your cronjobs aren't running.
13:32 magnuse bbl
13:32 magnuse is now known as magnus_away
13:40 bigbrovar jcamins: I ran this "/usr/share/koha/bin/cronjob​s/" manually and still when I checked the status it said pending.
13:40 jcamins bigbrovar: I'm out of ideas.
13:41 jcamins I don't have anything to do with administering e-mail on our servers.
13:42 yhager joined #koha
13:42 bigbrovar jcamins: I upgraded from koha 3.2 to 3.4.1 and so far so good the upgrade has been smooth as butter. I decided to test things out to see if anyhing is broken. which was why I checked the mail.
13:42 jcamins bigbrovar: did it work with 3.2?
13:42 bigbrovar any ideas which error log to check? or could this be a bug?
13:42 jcamins None.
13:43 bigbrovar jcamins: well our koha instance is has not been deployed so I never really tested it in 3.2 tbh.
13:43 jcamins Okay, I'm going to go with "never worked," then.
13:45 bigbrovar I wish there was a doc to check on how to configure email notification on koha, cus as I said sending them manually works on the koha server using  echo "test" | sendmail
13:45 jcamins With Postfix it just works.
13:45 jcamins Wait.
13:45 jcamins I know what the problem is.
13:45 jcamins Run the following command:
13:45 jcamins telnet localhost 25
13:45 jcamins EHLO bigbrovar
13:45 jcamins MAIL FROM:<>
13:46 jcamins RCPT TO:<>
13:46 jcamins DATA
13:46 jcamins From: <>
13:46 jcamins To: <>
13:46 jcamins Subject: Test
13:46 jcamins This is a test message
13:46 jcamins .
13:47 jcamins Does that work?
13:47 jcamins If it does, I'm out of ideas.
13:47 jcamins If it doesn't, you're on your own, but at least you know the problem is that the mail server is misconfigured.
13:47 bigbrovar got this ? 451 4.3.0 Temporary system failure. Please try again later
13:48 bigbrovar
13:48 jcamins Okay, that's the problem.
13:48 jcamins I recommend using Postfix.
13:48 jcamins Or Exim.
13:48 bigbrovar ok I will try Exim or postfix thanks
13:48 jcamins Or something that isn't carefully designed to make grown people weep.
13:49 bigbrovar lol

17:39 * jcamins opts not to share his age.

17:45 Oak ah, i want to learn to cook
17:45 jcamins magnuse: That sounds really tasty.
17:46 magnuse jcamins: it is ;-)
17:46 cait Oak: yes I am
17:46 cait but education here is a little differnt
17:46 cait I think
17:46 cait I have a bachelor, studied to be a librarian
17:46 Oak ah
17:47 Oak cool, i want to be a librarian someday...
17:49 cait sounds like you will
17:49 Oak bless you :)
17:51 cait I was researching for a master program yesterday..
17:51 Oak distance education?
17:52 cait yeah
17:52 Oak what did you find
17:52 cait one program so far
17:52 cait not so easy with a librarian degree to find something technical
17:53 Oak master program in what discipline?
17:53 cait computer science
17:53 Oak oh good
17:54 Oak the one program you found, is it by a University in Germany?
17:54 cait yeah
17:54 cait have to think more about it
17:54 cait I am doing a bachelor now, started a longer time ago, but a master woul be better
17:54 cait checking if there are some options now
17:55 Oak hm, sometimes it is better to not think too much
17:56 Oak but to obey your impulse
17:57 cait hm
17:57 cait not wrong, but things like that need some research
17:57 cait will write them a mail with some questions
17:57 Oak let me quote something I was reading 2 days ago:
18:00 Oak "Thumb back over the pages of your experience and note how many of your happiest moments and greatest successes have followed spur-of-the-moment actions and decisions. They are reminders that only from the depths of your inner self can you hope for an invincible urge towards accomplishment. So, obey your best impulses and watch yourself go!"
18:00 Oak "Obey That Impulse" by William Moulton Marston
18:02 cait :)
18:02 Oak true, things like that need research... before committing yourself
18:02 cait I feel like oyu are already a librarian
18:02 Oak um, :) the book was under my pillow...
18:03 cait another symptom
18:03 Oak oh well, I love to read
18:06 Oak a computer science degree will help a lot in your career library science
18:08 cait I hope so :)
18:08 cait but I like to fix things... and build new things
18:09 Oak :) and break things like your vacuum cleaner
18:10 Oak just kidding
18:11 Oak studying from home can have a disadvantage... that there won't be any interaction with fellow students.
18:13 Oak at least that's my concept of distance education
18:14 Oak but you know what's best under your circumstances, so, i'll shut up.
18:16 cait hehe
18:17 cait I work full time on koha
18:17 cait not nothing I want to change :)
18:18 jcamins Speaking of courses, I learned that the college right near my house has a course on project management.
18:18 jcamins :D
18:18 Oak ah then computer science should not be issue for you...
18:18 cait :)
18:19 cait jcamins: sounds cool )
18:21 jcamins That's what I thought, too.
18:49 Oak time to sleep

19:01 bigbrovar so am glad email notification now works after I installed and configured exim. only thing left is where to edit the signature of the emails sent. it says Thanyou, Koha Administrator  "kohaadmin"  where can that be customized?

20:01 Soup i did that
20:02 jcamins Hm.
20:02 jcamins Are you able to log in from the command line?
20:02 jcamins If not, probably you have KOHA_CONF set wrong.
20:02 jcamins Or, rather, if you are.
20:02 jcamins If you're not, then you'll need to correct the password. ;)
20:03 Soup log in in from command line, ok how does one does that
20:03 jcamins mysql -ukoha -p kohatest
20:03 jcamins Then you enter your password.

20:08 jcamins Yay!
20:08 Soup :D ok, now i can only choose english
20:08 Soup that is probably because thats the lang i said during the make install process
20:08 jcamins I don't know how to do an installation in another language.
20:08 jcamins Yes.
20:09 jcamins It's easy to install other languages, I just don't know how to run the installer in a language other than the one you chose at the beginning.
20:09 Soup :)
