Docker-CE Passbolt-CE not sending registration emails but test works

Trying to get this setup, but I’m a complete noob with docker, and 76% of one with Linux. Finally got it spun up with docker-compose on a VM Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Server - freshly created.

The test email will work using my configuration, but nothing else seems to send one out. Neither user registration or user recovery.

sudo docker-compose exec passbolt bin/cake passbolt send_test_email --recipient=xxx@xxx.com

Also, I dumbed down the standard docker-compose.yml since I’ve got DB covered already:

Hi @joshleonhart!

Thanks for your report! Could you check if you have any logs in /var/log/cron.log and also check if executing the email task manuall outputs any problem:

su -c "./bin/cake EmailQueue.sender" -s /bin/bash www-data

Well that’s odd. Lots of these:

SMTP server did not accept the password.
Email 13 was not sent

This didn’t return anything

sudo docker-compose exec passbolt su -c “./bin/cake EmailQueue.sender” -s /bin/bash www-data

So I tried from a shell in the container (I think…) and got the same result:

root@e7ae73d9fee8:/var/www/passbolt# su -c “./bin/cake EmailQueue.sender” -s /bin/bash www-data
root@e7ae73d9fee8:/var/www/passbolt#

Please check the env variables of the www-data user and ensure they are correct: su -c "env | grep EMAIL" -s /bin/bash www-data

su -c "env | grep EMAIL" -s /bin/bash www-data
EMAIL_TRANSPORT_DEFAULT_PASSWORD=ishouldsetupapppassword
EMAIL_DEFAULT_FROM=xxx@xxx.com
EMAIL_TRANSPORT_DEFAULT_USERNAME=xxx
EMAIL_TRANSPORT_DEFAULT_TLS=true
EMAIL_TRANSPORT_DEFAULT_HOST=smtp.gmail.com
EMAIL_TRANSPORT_DEFAULT_PORT=587

Seems in order there.
