Configure Zoho SMTP for outgoing?

We currently use Zoho Mail for our email. I have setup the SMTP server in various applications and it works fine. I'm trying to setup the SMTP in Confluence and when I send a test email I get a large error. I've verified that the username and password are correct, and the TLS port i'm using is correct. The error message doesn't seem to be too helpful?

Error:

An error has occurred with sending the test email:
com.atlassian.mail.MailException: javax.mail.MessagingException: Exception reading response;
nested exception is:
java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out

Hello David,

Thank you for contacting us about this error.

Have you had a look at the Confluence Server logs regarding this error? There may be more specifics about what is causing it.

For example: SocketTimeoutException when sending email With STARTTLS

You can try to add the SMTP server manually, the way you would be able to in past versions of Confluence. You can find the instructions for that below. See for Confluence 5.5.x and below:

Of course, you will want to make sure to modify the instructions for your version of Confluence and mail server.

Let me know if you have any questions about that.

Regards,

Shannon
