How to test

  1. Ensure you have the plugin installed with the command su -c 'yum install libreport-plugin-mailx'
  2. Ensure you have sendmail installed with the command su -c 'yum install sendmail'
  3. Ensure that the abrtd and abrt-applet processes are both running
  4. Kill a running process with the command kill -SIGSEGV (pid). It must be a process that is part of a signed Fedora package
  5. Start gnome-abrt (either from cmdline or from application menu).
  6. Select the entry matching the recently crashed application, then choose Analyze.
  7. At reporting step, choose Mailx as a reporting event
  8. Use Preferences button in the same window to configure the plugin, set your email as the recipient.
  9. Proceed to reporting using "Forward"/"Apply" buttons.
  10. If reporting is unsuccessful, please include the reporting log in your abrt bug report. Reporting log can be cut and pasted from the GUI report window, or retrieved from event_log file in problem data directory (e.g. /var/tmp/abrt/ccpp-2011-03-04-15:46:26-22496/event_log).
