What capabilities are needed to run sendemail command?

Hello all,

Certain users in our environment seem to be able to run searches utilizing the "sendemail" command while others cannot. I am assuming this due to differing capabilities assigned to their roles. Does anyone know what capability(s) are required to run "sendemail"?

Thanks,
Chris

I did some more digging and it appears that the affected users were getting the following error:
2017-10-18 15:57:21,405 -0400 ERROR sendemail:452 - 'rootCAPath' while sending mail to: xxxxxx@buttercupgames.com

This led me to this question:

As specified, I added the 'list_settings' capability to the role and it fixed the issue.

We had upgraded from 7.2.6 to 8.0.5 recently and Adding the role list_Settings didn't work. Kindly advise.

To run |sendmail command you need "search" capability.

Okay. Is that the only capability that is needed? If that is the case, then capabilities are not our issue.
