Description Peter Vreman 2015-09-17 11:37:48 UTC
Description of problem:
Almost all settings can be set through the API and the Web UI. The email delivery method and server (email.yaml) cannot be set. This is inconsistent and not inituitive for the user to suddenly have to edit a different configuration file on disk instead of using the API/UI.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure the mail delivery method and server through API
2. Configure the mail delivery method and server through UI

Actual results:
Not possible through API
Not possible through UI

Expected results:
Configuration of mail delivery and server can be set through API
Configuration of mail delivery and server can be set through UI

Version Tested:


Check screenshots, settings can be set through the UI now and testing these is as simple as clicking the "Test email" button.
