Description

I'm trying to configure SMTP in a fresh Redmine installation, and currently email deliveries fail due to wrong configuration.

But the mere fact of inability to send emails renders the system unusable - no issue can be updated - any modification causes an internal error.

This is a bug - email delivery should be separated from the ticket update process (protected with a kind of try/catch if we're talking in Java/C++ terms).

The error page:

Internal error

An error occurred on the page you were trying to access.
If you continue to experience problems please contact your redMine administrator for assistance.

In Redmine 4.0, the emails are delivered asynchronously by default using ActiveJob. This should fix this issue.
