      Description

      I'm trying to send e-mail to culprits when the build fails. If I start the build manually the e-mail is sent, but If I start the build through SCM polling e-mail is not send and the console output for the build shows the message: "An attempt to send an e-mail to empty list of recipients, ignored."

      Is that the right way the plugin should work (culprit should be a person, not scm polling)?

          Did you also select "Developers"?

          No, I didn't... But in that case what's the difference between selecting Developers+Culprits for a failed build and selecting just Developers for a failed build?

          Its definitely confusion, it will be clearer in a future release. When you select developers only the plugin iterates through the change set itself. When you also check culprits, the plugin instead calls the get culprits from the build.

          OK, yes it's a little confusing, but I will check both, Developers and Culprits. Maybe, in my case, confusion is due to lately project changes have been made just by me.

          Thanks for your help and for answering my questions so fast

          Changed to RecipientProvider which will have culprits as a standalone option for sending to.
