    TWiki password help


    Hello all

    I have a user that has forgotten their password. I tried to reset their password and get an error message along the lines of:-

    ERROR
    Exit code 256 from TWiki::cfg{MailProgram} at /usr/share/perl/5.8/CGI/Carp.pm line 314. at /usr/share/perl/5.8/CGI/Carp.pm line 314

    CGI::Carp::realdie('ERROR
    Exit code 256 from TWiki::cfg{MailProgram}') called at /usr/share/perl/5.8/CGI/Carp.pm line 385
    CGI::Carp::die('ERROR
    Exit code 256 from TWiki::cfg{MailProgram}') called at /usr/share/perl5/TWiki/Net.pm line 285

    etc......

    Too many failures sending mail %PARAM2% %PARAM3% %PARAM4%.

    Previously the message would generate some sort of error but the message would be sent to www-data and all would be fine. Something has obviously happened since - issue with twiki or mail program (we dont use the server with twiki on for ougoing emails)??? Any suggestions?

    Re: TWiki password help

    I had a similar problem, with the same error and was able to resolve this by simply editing my TWiki.cfg file and change the following lines from

    #$TWiki::cfg{SMTP}{MAILHOST} = 'some.mail.com';
    $TWiki::cfg{SENDMAIL}{MAILHOST} = 'some.mail.com';

    and then tested and all is good. Now users are able to register and receive emails on their temp passwords.

    Hope this what you was looking for.
