Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1292747
Satellite's email configuration should use sendmail by default and not 'smtp.example.com'
Last modified: 2017-10-03 10:00:47 EDT
Description of problem:
As a user I would like to have the default email configuration (specified in /etc/foreman/email.yml) to be changes to 'localhost' from 'smtp.example.com'
The reasoning for this is the following:
* Almost every server system has a local MTA (even if all that MTA does is relay mail to another).
* If I mail-enable a user accidentally without specifying an MTA, many of my tasks that send email (repository sync or content view promotion) end in a 'warning' state due to not being able to connect to 'smtp.example.com'
* Having the email sent to my local MTA allows the MTA the ability to retry delivery, queue the message and various other mail delivery tasks that MTA are good at.

Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/15704 from this bug
I think sendmail has a better chance of 'just working' on a un*x system
+1 on sendmail
