Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 202435
Email address claims to update but continues to use original address
Last modified: 2007-04-18 13:47:20 EDT
Description of problem:
I have had a login via GLS sending emails to my personal email address (as I was
a contractor). Went to https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/account/ChangeEmail.do to
change my email to my new "internal" email address since I was recently hired by
GLS. Page claims that it will send a confirmation email - never received one.
Page claims to use the new email. All alerts, etc. continue to be sent to the
original personal email address.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Bottom of page says RHN 4.1.0
Have tried changing it to other alternate personal email addresses. While the
"page" reflects whatever I have changed it to, all emails continue to use the
original email address.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Your Account - Change Email
2. Fill in new email address
3. Click Update
Email address appears to be changed in database, but emails continue to be sent
to old email address.
All emails should be sent to the new email address
Have also tried turning off emails for an hour and then turning them back on via
the "Your Preferences" link thinking it might unsubscribe the old/subscribe the
new. Had no effect.
Changed query to look at the new canonical source for email which is
1) creae a user and make sure you get emails via taskomatic, i.e. for errata
2) change your email address
3) confirm emalis go to new email address
NOTE: removed verification verbiage, so no email verification will occur.
Verified on satellite with taskomatic-4.1.0-820.
closing -- current release. RHN414 phase 14 gazillion is now in production.
