For the first registration email, installed with latest docker image, my SMTP server is responding with:
Unexpected return code 554 (expected 250): “Access denied: User `arn:aws:iam::[acct]:user/[user]' is not authorized to perform `ses:SendRawEmail' on resource `arn:aws:ses:us-west-1:[acct]:identity/[identity]'”.
However, Discourse log file
production.log shows this:
Started PUT "/finish-installation/resend-email" for [ip] at 2020-11-16 20:58:10 +0000 Processing by FinishInstallationController#resend_email as HTML Parameters: ... Completed 200 OK in 23ms (Views: 6.4ms | ActiveRecord: 0.0ms | Allocations: 6023) ... Delivered mail [randid]@[hostname] (191.3ms)
It seems to me the website, or at least the logs, should return an error, rather than a success message.
