SID-02200: Amazon Linux, Postfix, SES

Status: Asked Asked TWiki version: 6.0.1 Perl version: 5.016003
Category: CategoryEmail Server OS: Amazon Linux 2016 Last update: 2 years ago

I am trying to get email configured to work on my Amazon Linux EC2 Instance using postfix routing through SES. I have configured my postfix settings to SMTP to SES which then sends the email. This works fine via command line, I get no errors and the email get delivered however I can't get it to work with Twiki. I have turned on debugging and not getting any errors, Twiki says Net::SMTP is installed and I am running the perl email script which is picking up changes and the destination address but that is. MailProgramPath: /usr/sbin/sendmail.postfix -t -oi -oeq

Help would be appreciated, Thanks.

Discussion and Answer

I've no idea what SES is, but if you have installed Net::SMTP, then TWiki will send mail without an external program. The setting in MailProgram is ignored in this case. You just need to provide the name of a SMTP server in {SMTP}{MAILHOST}, and probably a username/password in {SMTP}{Username} and {SMTP}{Password}.
