Activation Email not Received


(Brian Stewart) #1

Hi there i’ve setup Discourse on DigitalOcean and i can access the main page

but when i try to create the new user (the first user)

the activation email is never received.

I entered details for the SMTP

is there a way to go back into root and check the configuration again?

I’ve double checked the configuration and all is 100% same as mandrill expected settings

no leading # either

help :frowning:

Did you try sending a test email? If yes, can you paste your app.yml? (Make sure you hide password and other API Key or secrets)

You need to answer every single question in the email troubleshooting howto first.

Yes i did send a test email and verified that emails were working correctly with Mandrill.

the problem though was because i didnt copy and paste the api key for mandrill :frowning: woops

I misread a I (eye) for an l (L)
