I am having a similar problem, which I was about to search the archives for.
Mine, however, says unable to add recipient, instead of unable to set
Here is the background information.
1. I have the "SMTP (Outgoing Email) Settings: " set to point to my
2. I normally run eventum with the "Email Integration Feature" disabled.
3. Eventum does send out new user emails, update notifications, etc with no
problems when "Email Integration Feature" is disabled.
What I changed.
I wanted to start testing out the "Email Integration Feature", so I had our
network admin set me up with a test account. I set this account up using
IMAP on the "Manage Email Accounts" page. I was able to download messages
(which automatically associated themselves with a new issue, which I would
not actually like them to do).
I thought things looked good, except that as soon as I did this, I started
receiving the error message below.
If I turn the "Email Integration Feature" off, I don't get them, as soon as
I turn it back on, I get them.

Do you have email information set in manage/general.php ? You will need to
fill in the "SMTP (Outgoing emails) Settings" section. Unfortunately all the
emails currently in the queue will need to either be deleted, or updated to
set the From field.
Please let me know if this solves your problem.
