Description Peter Gervai (grin) 2004-09-02 18:51:03 UTC
Tried to send email to myself from and it did not arrive. Others reported the 
same. Is the MTA broken, or someone played with firewall settings?
Comment 1 Emil Jerabek 2004-09-09 13:19:17 UTC
More details, and a workaround: I had the same problem, and I found out that the
feature works if and only if I set a nonempty nickname in Preferences. (NB: the
nickname is _not_ used for anything related to email.)
Comment 2 Wil Mahan 2004-10-01 03:03:20 UTC
I created an account on, and sending mail to myself worked,
both with and without a nickname. It also works on en, and in the latest CVS
branches of MediaWiki. Is this still reproducible?

Word on #mediawiki is that this was a server configuration issue, and it should
be fixed now (thanks Kate).
