Adding Users Throws error

Hello,

When I try to add new user, it throws the following error :

Traceback (innermost last):
File “lib/py/webnotes/handler.py”, line 224, in handle
execute_cmd(cmd)
File “lib/py/webnotes/handler.py”, line 256, in execute_cmd
ret = method(webnotes.form_dict.get(‘arg’))

sess = self.smtp_connect()
File “lib/py/webnotes/utils/email_lib/send.py”, line 239, in smtp_connect
sess = smtplib.SMTP(self.server.encode(‘utf-8’), cint(self.port) or None)
AttributeError: ‘NoneType’ object has no attribute 'encode’


I tried to setup Mail settings with our online server which accepts all email in relay mode from our IP

But the error still persists.

Any potential solutions ?

Hi,

Please specify the following in defs.py file:
mail_server =
mail_port =
mail_login =
mail_password =
use_ssl =

This should solve your problem.

Also, please post technical queries on the technical forum:
wn...@googlegroups.com

Thanks,
Anand.
