Document URL: 


Section Number and Name: 

3.5.6. Configuring Satellite Server for Outgoing Emails

Describe the issue: 

--- Begin Current ---
Alternatively, add the following directive to /etc/foreman/email.yaml under smtp_settings:

enable_starttls_auto: :false
--- End Current ---

Suggestions for improvement: 

I have determined that the following doesn't work:

  enable_starttls_auto: :false 

In order to fix this error, I made the following change:

  enable_starttls_auto: false

(NOTICE: removed second colon)

Additional information:

Comment 1 mharris 2017-09-26 20:46:15 UTC
So, I'm pretty sure this config worked in 6.2.9, but hasn't worked since the upgrade to 6.2.10, 6.2.11, and 6.2.12

I know:   'enable_starttls_auto: : false' appears elsewhere in the document as well as 'enable_starttls_auto: :true'

I don't have time to test all config settings in this area, but maybe someone with more yaml and Satellite Configuration experience than me, can take a quick look, and determine if anything else in the documentation needs to change.

Assigning to Clifton for review.

Clifton - looks like a quick fix, but let's reach out to the engineering team related to this work and see if they have any comments.
