Note - I am assuming that this is a bug in configure rather than in SendEmailPlugin.

Refer to Can't send mail with SendEmailForm:

When I try to send a mail I see:

"Not Found The requested URL /bin/sendemail/Sandbox/TestTopic3 was not found on this server." 

As noted by Aaron Walker, the issue is caused by a missing configuration element.

This is probably because the Switchboard configuration is missing from their LocalSite.cfg. I just had the problem ("Not found..."), and it was a bear figuring it out.
$TWiki::cfg{SwitchBoard}{sendemail} = [
            'sendemail' => 1

This element, {SwitchBoard}{sendemail} is in the bin/configure form

but is somehow never copied into LocalSite.cfg.

I had to edit LocalSite.cfg manually.

For me the same: adding this to LocalSite.cfs made SendEmailPluging work. Can this be added to standard plugin installation? And until then I would like to add this to the SendEmailPluging documentation, but I am not sure where to do this.
