Email service fails

Post by Bloodrule » Sun Jan 07, 2018 10:07 pm

When trying to configure email under Setup Push Services, clicking Save & Test brings up this error:

Mail send failed: 2018-01-07 16:33:15 Exim configuration error in line 1 of /home/meteohub/msmtprc:# main option "account" unknown#2018-01-07 16:33:15 Exim configuration error in line 1 of /home/meteohub/msmtprc:# main option "account" unknown#2018-01-07 16:33:15 Exim configuration error in line 1 of /home/meteohub/msmtprc:# main option "account" unknown#exim: could not open panic log - aborting: see message(s) above

I have tried downgrading to 5.0h but the problem persists. If I try to manually edit line 1 of msmtprc my saved changes are overwritten by the original settings next time I click Save & Test.

My msmptrc file is (have blocked personal details):

account default
host smtp.gmail.com
port 587
from p****@gmail.com
user "p****@gmail.com"
password "********"
auth on
tls on
tls_starttls on
tls_certcheck off

I am stuck and would appreciate any help. Thanks!

I've got the same problem, 5.0s (and I can't upgrade to 5.0x in case that fixes it, see the Frankenkernel post).
