Question

Hello,

I'm in the process of setting up TWiki on my Mac and once I tried to create a new user, I got the following message:

"Error registering new user

Internal error when sending email to diehl@alumniPLEASENOSPAM.cmu.edu.

Please contact diehl@alumniPLEASENOSPAM.cmu.edu.

You have not been registered."

Before I simply abandon email notifications of any kind, I'm wondering if someone can give me some direction on how to diagnose the problem. Honestly I'm not surprised it does not work. I set the email configuration parameters in configure in a way as to, hopefully, send outgoing mail via my GMail account. I did not set up a cron job as indicated in the OSX specific install documentation since I'm not sure what that implies I should do. cron jobs are new to me.

Any additional guidance from more experienced users would be greatly appreciated. I've dived head first into wikis just recently, starting with MediaWiki, and have battled through lots of new challenges. I'm hoping to get TWiki to where I need it since it seems to be a nice solution offering me what I need.

Thanks in advance for your help, Chris
