If you’ve ever reported a but to Ruby on Rails, you’ll have noticed that their Trac has nice email notification feature. And I bet you want that in your Trac as well!

In your trac directory open up conf/trac.ini and look for the [notification] header. Make sure you have at least the following settings. Of course, make sure you enter valid values for your situation.

always_notify_owner = true
always_notify_reporter = true
always_notify_updater = true
smtp_always_cc = trac-updates@mailinglist # Optional if you want to archive outgoing emails
smtp_enabled = true
smtp_from = trac@ariejan.net
smtp_from_name = Ariejan.net Trac
smtp_port = 25
