I too would like to know how to get this working. I tried using the torolab Notes servers as SMTP but nothing goes out.

Add another "me too". I am setup to connect to, which does not require an SSL connection. However, if you do not specify a user/password, you get failures in the notify component. I have Enhancement 29669 opened for this (planned for 0.6 M3).

To get around this, I hacked the Mailer code to not require the user/password, and I _think_ I get the javax.mail code correct. I no longer get the failures in the log (because of empty user/password), but it doesn't seem to be even going through the code path any more, that I can tell. If I get something to work, I will add more to this thread.

Bryan and others: Have you looked in your server log to see if there are any errors?

I specified actual valid values for the rest of the fields, except for password which I just set to password.

How do you know if the notifications are working or not? I am subscribed to an item and I make changes to it, but I still don't see any notifications. Do notifications not get sent out if the person subscribed is the one making the change?

Ahh that's exactly the problem. You don't get notifications on changes you make yourself, which makes complete sense. Too bad I didn't figure it out until just now. Notifications seem to be working for me.

Notifications started working here too. If you setup all the values properly and use one of the notes servers it seems to work well.
