Some members of the rello mailinglist don’t receive any mail after moving to the new server. The /var/log/mail.err says:

pam_authenticate() failed: Authentication failure (/etc/pam.d/imap missing?)

I read the Dovecot docs and compared the configs of old and new server… but without success.

I also stumbled into #3333 (Unable to create comments with invalid @user or #ticket): When I post a comment “Try #foobar baz”, then the comment gets created, but the action returns a single text line ValueError: invalid literal for int() with base 10: 'foobar' instead of JSON object with { "success": true, "message": ... }

I changed test_notify.py in team demo project to reproduce the problem.

TODO: A same file test_notify.py exists in the eric demo project. Shouldn’t that file go away because it is redundant? What is the difference between eric and team?

And while I was there I also fixed the problem. Note: Hamza is the culprit :-) his work for #3108 didn’t handle exceptions.
