I've just installed CE 7.1 SR5 on my laptop...
I've been (trying) to follow all the post installation steps to get the config all sorted - so far so good it seems.
I'm a developer by trade and although I've done lots of work with the EP, Web Dynpro etc, I'm not really familiar with Portal config stuff or with Basis . I'm just working my way around the UME and getting my head around creating users, roles, groups, etc... Something I'm struggling to get working straight away is the email notification aspect from the UME. I've not made any changes to any config at the JavaMail service level and in the UME all I have done is activate all email notifications and also turned on self registration and got that working ok.
I'm not getting any emails out of the CE Portal. Am I missing something?! Should I expect the emails to just work out of the box?! My assumption from reading the documentation I can find implies that the CE Portal should just use the JavaMail service installed with the AS Java to send (and receive) emails but it doesn't appear to!
Is there any easy way to test it or see if it is working? And way of viewing logs to see if it is trying to send emails?
Any suggestions or comments welcome as I have no clue where else to look!
