Hi Akeem,

I would start and check your mail relay settings in the https://FQDN/server_admin/email and verify if they are correct (requires an admin level account to view).

If that checks out, login to the HipChat Server CLI and check the mail queue by running the {{mailq}} command. Are there any emails queued up for delivery? If so, there should be an error message associated with each of the entries to help troubleshoot why they aren't being sent.

If there aren't any emails in the {{mailq}}, check the mail log at /var/log/hipchat/mail.log and see if email has been sent out. If everything checks out here, then the email is making it's way out of the server and the problem likely resides elsewhere.

I hope this helps.

Hi David


I have checked where you suggested, and I can not see anything, really not sure why the mail is not coming through, as others get this mails on the same network, and the initial one was sent but subsequent never arrived, is there away to force a password reset without reset mail going out, as I am running out of ideas.

Hi Akeem,

That is strange. To double check - I would tail the mail log in HipChat CLI (using tail -f /var/log/hipchat/mail.log command) then have a user reset their password. You should see an entry pop. It should look something like:

2019-07-17T18:11:02.592800-04:00 hipchat9 postfix/smtp[22972]: 59BC111262D: to=<>, relay=<RELAY ADDRESS>[<IP>]:<PORT>, delay=302, delays=301/0.01/0.58/0.42, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 OK  1563401462 o37si16280844qtb.397 - gsmtp)

 If it's a code 250, then it's been sent from HipChat to the relay and there is still something intercepting it after this point.
