Cannot execute SendEmailPlugin

I installed and activated the SendEmail Plugin using configure. It reported the installation was completed without errors. The plugin is shown as active in the wiki. However, when I try to use the plugin I get the following message:

Not Found

The requested URL /CorporateWiki/bin/sendemail/System/SendEmailPlugin was not found on this server.

On my installation I think the URL should be rewritten as /CorporateWiki/bin/lib/Foswiki/Plugins/SendEmailPlugin

How do I track down the source of this problem and how do I correct?

The lib directory should never be directly accessible from the browser URL. If there is any chance it could be directly read, you would risk exposing your internal configuration. Scripts executed by the client are installed into the bin directory. There are a couple of things to check
  • Verify that the shebang is correct for your environment in bin/sendemail
  • Make sure you went through at least one bin/configure save cycle, and that the switchboard entry has been created in lib/LocalSite.cfg
