ReadyNas photos sharing notification email not sent

Hi,
I'm running a duo on 4.1.8 release with ReadyNas add-on. Lately, neither of the album sharing notification mails are sent out - this functionality was working well up to some couple of days ago. I can see the albums under "shared albums" in readynas. Previously shared albums are accessible without issues(hence no connectivity issues)
Any hints on this?
Thank you in advance!

Firmware RAIDiator 5.3.7
ReadyNAS Photos II 1.0.6

Problem seems to have reappeared unfortunately. A few weeks ago it worked but yesterday it had stopped.
Please have a look

Re: ReadyNas photos sharing notification email not sent

Hello,

I too was annoyed with this issue. :twisted:
There's a member - Pkas - who offered an alternative solution, independent of Netgear's service to send the e-mail invitations.
I contacted him, it works and is simple and effective. There is now a shortcut on my desktop that will log into the NAS, start the script (select albums / people, send emails) and logout. 😎
Many thanks to Pkas, I count now 100% on my ReadyNAS for sharing albums.

Cheers,

Benoit

Yikes - I'm trusting all my data with a company that can't even keep a mailserver up.....

Re: ReadyNas photos sharing notification email not sent

Also very disappointed in NetGear not solving this long standing issue.

I made a short Python script that creates a csv file with all invitations and their virtual url's.
You can use these for re-inviting your guests through a mail from your own mail client.
I do not see an option to attach a file so I pasted the script below. Unfortunately this in general messes up the indentation that is vital to python. You are of course welcome to ask for the proper source file but keep in mind that accessing and manipulating databases is pretty much outside my comfort zone; possibly many improvements and simplifications possible.

Cheers, Janwillem

Python script to retrieve a list if invitations send by ReadyNAS Photo ii.
The list contains the data needed to send an invitation by regular e-mail
as a work around for the malfunctioning of the readynas mail server.
The list is saved as a semi-colon seperated csv file.

The user dependant data like server address, user name, password ... must be
supplied in a json file with the following structure.
{
"server": "the-nas-address",
"port": "3306",
"user": "the-user",
"password": "the-password",
"readynas_name": "my-nas-name"
}
Advice:
Install phpMyAdmin on the server and make a special user called python
that only has read access.
