Anyone ever use git-send-email with a sonic account?

I would like to send email from the command line in order to post patches to developer mailing lists. Has anyone else ever done so?

Sorry, never tried and am not using sonic email either.

I believe sonic blocks un-autenticated smtp connections (port 25) so you would need to set the --smtp-server, --smtp-user --smtp-pass, and also --smtp-encryption.

Everything should be here

Hey, thanks ngufra for the suggestions. As I again have reason to use git-send-email, I finally got it working. Here's what I put in my .git/config file:

Code: Select all

from =
smtpServer =
smtpServerPort = 587
smtpUser = metoo@my-mail-host
smtpEncryption = tls

Then on CLI:

Code: Select all

$ git send-email --subject="test from bitscream" --to=me@my-mail-host --from=metoo@my-mail-host --smtp-pass=12345 --smtp-debug 0000-foo.patch

Best wishes,
