by default b2b-demoshop is not sending emails to real mail addresses.
If you want just to check that emails are actually sent, you need to install a mailcatcher application that gets all mails sent by the system.
It should already be installed in the VM.
Try go to " [zed_address]:1080/" (like http://zed.de.suite-b2b-internal.local:1080/) in the browser and see the mailcatcher. If any mailing will be triggered in the system, the messages should appear in the inbox of the mailcatcher.
If you for some reason do not have it installed, please check the installation steps here:
Inside the VM install the tool with
sudo -i apt-get install gcc libsqlite3-dev
sudo gem install mailcatcher
During the installation it can be asked to install something else beforehand. Install it and repeat the installation of the mailcatcher.
start the mailcathcer with
You can check that the mailcatcher is up and running with this command
ps -aux | grep mailcatcher
It should show exactly two entries like:
grep --color=auto --exclude-dir=.bzr --exclude-dir=CVS --exclude-dir=.git --exclude-dir=.hg --exclude-dir=.svn mailcatcher
Now you can go to
[zed_address]:1080/ (like http://zed.de.suite-b2b-internal.local:1080/) in the browser and see the mailcatcher. If any mailing will be triggered in the system, the messages should appear in the inbox of the mailcatcher.
