I created a repository on the Bitbucket. And in Admin tab I found Services configuration. As I understand services allow to integrate with email, twitter and so on.

I expected that once I configured a service (email-service, for instance) I would receive email notifications about new changesets (when someone make hg 'push' command). But I don't receive anything.

What's the correct way to configure automatic notifications about new changesets on Bitbucket? And what do the services really do?

It's pretty easy to set up email notifications you just enter the email address that you want the notifications to be sent to.

Have you checked that

  • the email hasn't been marked as spam - emails are sent from [email protected]
  • you have pushed the changes to the remote server (Bitbucket) and they aren't being pushed to a local repository.
  • the email address you have added is correct

Complete information on configuring Bitbucket services can be found here. In particular email configuration can be found here.

  • Thanks, Barry. Unfortunally, all these steps I've already done before asking the question.

  • @Roman - I would then suggest raising a support ticket with Bitbucket directly. Thanks Dec 7, 2010 at 9:00
