Why won't e-mail alerts work?You have to set your alertServer to a local SMTP server. If you have done this try (in Squeak)
You can paste the script in a transcript window -> select 'open..' followed by 'transscript'. Select all the code and select 'do it'.
SMTPSocket deliverMailFrom: 'firstname.lastname@example.org' to: #(#'email@example.com' ) text: 'From: test To: "not listed" Subject: this is a test Hello from Squeak! ' usingServer: 'yourSMTPserver'If you get the message, it should work. If not, something is weird with your SMTP server. If it still does not work, it may be a bug. Please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, make sure that you followed the instructions in the AdminTool about setting up the refs package to have useful alertServer and alertSender fields.
There is actually a patch for this problem, check the Swiki buglist !
