You need a Mail Transfer Agent MTA on the server. The easiest way is to install Sendmail, which Git uses by default.
apt-get install sendmailRemember that /etc/hosts file needs the ip address to map to the domain name your sending mail from
# vim /etc/hosts 127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain 126.96.36.199 wwwexample.comSendmail has a tendency to hang when sending mail otherwise. To test sendmail
sendmail email@example.com this is a test how are you today world? .The period on a line by itself denotes end of message and will terminate the prompt and deliver the message.
Now you need to configure Git to send email after it receives a "push" from a committer. You can add email addresses, or you can set up a mailing list to email all members. Either way, you accomplish this with the following command, just remember to cd into the git repository.
git config --add hooks.mailinglist "firstname.lastname@example.org"Next you need to activate the post-receive hook, located in the hooks directory of your repository.
cp post-receive.sample post-receiveAnd uncomment the last line, which uses sendmail to deliver the commit message
# uncomment the last line but keep the period "." . /usr/share/doc/git-core/contrib/hooks/post-receive-emailAll done. Now just make some changes to your source code, add and commit them and you should receive an email with all the details!
