It would be really useful to have an email test button available in the admin menus where email settings are made.

I imagine that the send email test would use the PHP Mail function to send email with the settings and return the SMTP debug info for validation/troubleshooting without having to leave the window. This is especially useful when creating new admin users in a new site, where the workaround is to create a new user over and over until the settings are correct.

The receive email test would use the send mail function to send a test email to the address(es) that are set.

Thanks!

I absolutely agree. I'm having trouble getting my gmail account to work with this - and it's extremely daunting setting settings, going to tokens, sending an invite - catching the error message, going back to email settings ... and over and over again.
If there was a test button - I would love it!

Hi,

To do this : use tab of your brower
- 1st tab : send one email via token
- 2nd tab: Global settings / email : update
- 1st tab : reload and click "OK" when browser ask if you really want resend same information
- 2nd tab: click on global setting and save
- 1st tab : reload and click "OK" when browser ask if you really want resend same information
...

The lack is a "Save" like in survey settings in Global settings ( in 2.06 : save in survey setting come to same tab)

PS: You can make feature request , or develop a plugin, or earn a dev, or make a donation in the feature request
