Unable to store mail prefix or SMTP password in Crowd mail configuration settings

Hi, I'm currently trying to set up an SMTP server to send mail for our Atlassian Crowd installation. On the Mail configuration settings page, I have all of the correct authentication and mail sends just fine when I use the Send test email option. However, when I click Update to save my configuration, the configuration is lost when I leave the page so all subsequent emails fail. This same problem happens when I attempt to update the Subject prefix.

All other fields (e.g. UsernameSMTP host, etc.) update and save with no issues.

Hi @Mike

The mail configuration settings are stored in the CWD_PROPERTY table in Crowd's database.

Thus, you can save or update those settings with SQL queries, for instance:

where PROPERTY_NAME='mailserver.prefix';
