Email configuration

To be able send your commits (patches) via email you need configure an SMTP server.

git config --global sendemail.smtpserver smtp.exmaple.com

For sending from a gmail address you can do:

git config --global sendemail.smtpserver smtp.gmail.com git config --global sendemail.smtpserverport 587 git config --global sendemail.smtpencryption tls git config --global sendemail.smtpuser your_email@gmail.com

Optionally, it is possible to skip the password prompt by adding it to the configuration with:

git config --global sendemail.smtppass your_password

To reset CC mail attribute

git config --global sendemail.suppresscc all
