Configuring Redmine Incoming Emails on Windows


Redmine can read from an email account and update tasks with the following rake command:
rake -f “C:\Ruby187\Apps\redmine-1.1.2\Rakefile” redmine:email:receive_pop3 RAILS_ENV=production password=”password”

This is good, however we need to set up a Cron Job to make it check on a defined schedule. To do this, we install Pycron as service:

Now open the crontab.txt Editor.

Browse for your rake.bat file in the Command area, then enter the rest of your parameters in the Parameters area.

Test and done!
