Hello Dr.Ferdinand,

I think you have missed something, would you please assign your user to "Marketing/manager" group because If our user is "Marketing/Manager" then and then only he can send a mail. So If you want to configure outgoing main server then you must be assign a "Marketing/manager" group to your respective user.

As generalize way, in large organize only marketing manager can send a mail, so current behaviour is fine that's why we can not consider this as a bug.

Would you please look in to marketing_campaign 's csv file line #21.

Correct me If I am wrong.

I am talking about CONFIGURE SMTP Server

I am sure that this is not the task of a marketing manger but of the admin or user with admin rights

sending mails works (hopefully) for everyone who has access to the crm and mail related forms and functions
* sales man
* invoice accountant
* etc
