  • Attach your smtp settings, most likely that you have misconfigured git send-email. Otherwise try refreshing/checking your ssl certificates at /etc/ssl/certs

  • i have also added the:
    sendemail.smtppass= myGMAILpassowrd

  • You will have to generate app specific password for authentication if you have 2-factor on your gmail account. Please refer to this - https://git-scm.com/docs/git-send-email

    Unable to initialize SMTP properly. Check config and use --smtp-debug. VALUES: server=localhost encryption= hello=localhosst.localdomain port=465 at /usr/lib/git-core/git-send-email line 1506.

  • Check your .gitconfig -

    [sendemail]
    smtpserver = smtp.gmail.com
    smtpserverport = 587
    smtpencryption = tls
    smtpuser = gmail_username
    smtppass = app-password

    The above should work.
