Bug Description

Currently, to report an exception that occurs in IntelliJ, I have to provide an SMTP server.
Because not many of us own such a thing (or know the details for a public SMTP server), I assume many bugs are simply not reported.

Logging-in to launchpad takes much more time that simply pressing a button inside IntelliJ.

Please change the reporting feature, so that it doesn't require an SMTP server anymore.
You could have an HTTP service (authenticated, if you want) that listens for bug reports and maybe even add them to launchpad automatically.

I believe this is not something under bzr4j's control. The bug reporting mechanism is an IntelliJ feature. You could try filing a bug report in the IntelliJ tracker:

This thing is under the plugin's control.

To be more specific, I was suggesting to modify the class org.emergent.bzr4j.intellij.util.BzrErrorReportSubmitter so that it uses an HTTP service instead of SMTP to submit bug reports.
