Bitnami Redmine veriosn:18.104.22.168
System: Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation
Virtual box (latest version).
I keep having problems with this error message: An error occurred while sending mail (No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. - connect(2)) after configuring the email settings which was enabled in the environment.rb by action_mailer=true.
Then when I click on the Send a test email, an error message displayed as: "An error occurred while sending mail (No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it. - connect(2))"
I followed all guides on this in this forum and others, dose not seem to work. :( What do i need to do to enable this to work?
A copy of Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation is installed on a virtual box to testing if it's working without affect the actual server; whereas the other server is 'Live'. Once the Redmine bitnami is working fine with email configured and sent test email is ok, those settings will be enabled in the actual server.
My configuration.yml for smtp are: (im not sure if i need to rename it to email.yml? This is all without quotes:
I'm guessing, the virtual box with windows server 2008 R2 is on localhost? and i access the redmine welcome page and user login page by the virtualbox containing the O/S's IP. Can this be one the problem as its a lookback and does not communicated with the internet or outside network? (The email settings config worked fine but not the send test email). other server is live.
Please help, much appreciated! Thanks!
