Hm. This seems incorrect? Re: weblate user can not send e-mail using `mail user@hostname` on the command line. And I imagine that is what would be used by python/django running as the weblate user?

So instead, I think we need to authenticate weblate user through the mail system?

For an example, here is a similar configuration using GMAIL settings:

But maybe I am wrong, in which case please explain how mail can be sent from the command line as weblate user, so I can debug where the problem is.

Hmm. I checked, and I _think_ a configuration option for localhost relaying was missing. Now that I've set this, I can do:

# telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 ESMTP Postfix
HELO localhost
MAIL From:
250 2.1.0 Ok
250 2.1.5 Ok
354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF>
250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as 4C50131C0276
221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.

So it should work now.

Interesting. I'm not sure that weblate's "localhost" function will work that way but maybe. I assumed it would look for a `mail` function locally, that seems common.

Anyway sending an e-mail to myself using that method from weblate user failed. No errors - just didn't receive the e-mail. Message was "250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as 6F52531C0016" Time: 4:24UTC in case you want to check logs.

Cancel that request. The e-mail came though eventually.
