Notifications page cannot be saved without configuring or disabling SMTP
Added by Steve Wheeler almost 2 years ago.

Plus Target Version:
In System > Advanced > Notifications page you can only save changes to any value on the page if the email section is either correctly configured for sending email or the 'Disable SMTP Notifications' box is checked.
In the default case, where neither of those things are true, any other changes on the page appear to save but are not actually put in the config.
No error is shown.
No errors are logged.

Someone else reported this in #11955 but I couldn't reproduce it at the time, and I still can't reproduce it on 2.5.2. I tried on two different systems which had never touched the notification settings and it worked on both.
There must be something else happening here, either a browser plugin auto-filling incomplete settings or some partial config in config.xml which is now rejected.
Either way, we need to know the exact conditions which bring out the problem to know if there is anything we can do.

Steps to replicate:
Install pfSense clean. I used a 2.5.2 image here but have also see it in 21.05 and 2.5.1.
Skip the setup wizard and go to System > Advanced > Notifications. I have also see this after running the wizard though and on older installs.
Check 'Disable the startup/shutdown beep' and save the page.
It will appear to save but returns very quickly. No error is shown.
If you refresh the page 'Disable the startup/shutdown beep' will not be set and nothing will be written to the config.
I can confirm that this is reproducible with those steps.
