Enabling Email Support

Setting "mail_smarthost" and "mail_from" in the configuration activates features that are explained below. These features are otherwise not available, since there are no general defaults.

mail_from

This value is used for the "From:" header in the emails sent, if no better value is known.

mail_smarthost

This is the IP or domain name of an FOLDOC:SMTP enabled server. On a Unix host, you can try to use localhost; on a Windows machine this will normally be a machine in your LAN or some host of your ISP.

mail_login

This is only needed when you use SMTP AUTH to send mail; in that case, set this to the username and password separated by a space, i.e. "user pwd".

Email Features

MoinMoin currently offers two email-based services, which are explained in the following sections.

Sending Login Data

If emailing is available, the UserPreferences dialog is expanded with a field "<<GetText(Your email address)>>" and a button "<<GetText( Mail me my account data )>>". The user can enter the email address he provided at registration and then gets an email containing all necessary data to re-login, after clicking the button.

Change Notification

Any user can subscribe to changes of wiki pages by either clicking on the envelope icon <<Icon(moin-email.gif)>>, or by adding a regex to the "Subscribed wiki pages" field of his UserPreferences. The system then sends, whenever a page is changed and the author doesn't uncheck the "<<GetText(Send mail notification)>>" checkbox, an email with the author, a link to the page, and the diff of the change.
