TitleNo startup message if you don't receive e-mail
Assigned userGareth Rees
DescriptionIf you turn off e-mail by setting smtp_server or administrator_address to None then the replicator starts without printing anything. This is disconcerting to people who are used to it printing a startup message: it looks as though something's gone wrong.
AnalysisThe startup message is actually a report that e-mail is being sent. That's why it doesn't appear if mail is turned off.
How foundcustomer
EvidencePointed out by TeamShare at the Perforce User Conference 2001, where they were demonstrating the integration without a network connection, hence with e-mail turned off.
