    Hi Marc-Andre

    In Umbraco V8 the 'Notifications' option only appears on the action menu for a particular item in the content tree if SMTP is configured correctly in the application's web.config.

    I guess that sort of makes sense as the notifications wouldn't be able to be sent without the SMTP config.. but hard to know that's the case!

    If working locally you could add...

      <smtp deliveryMethod="SpecifiedPickupDirectory">
        <specifiedPickupDirectory pickupDirectoryLocation="C:\TEMP" />

    Hi Marc!

    I got my STMP configured and working and I don't see the notification options. :/

    For anyone still hitting this problem, note that Umbraco does not consider your SMTP settings to be 'configured' if you simply uncomment the default settings. That is, if it finds from="[email protected]" in the mail settings, it won't offer the notification feature.

        <smtp from="[email protected]">
            <network host="" userName="username" password="password" />
