Confluence Email server issue

Hi,

I'm using confluence 2.2.1 and have set up SMTP server under Confluence Administration --> Mail Servers to send emails from Confluence. And now the problem is, the following exception is thrown when trying to send an email.

An error has occurred with sending the test email:
javax.mail.SendFailedException: Sending failed;
nested exception is:

The strange thing is, the above exception is not thrown all the times for same scenario. I'm able to send email sometimes. For Ex- I was able to send email 30 mins back but it doesnt seem to be working now (exception same as above). And this happens everyday. Am not sure if this would be from SMTP server end or have got something to do with Confluence.

Could there be any other settings which I'm missing obvious? But wondering how would it work sometimes.

This thing really drives me crazy as i'm unable to track down the problem. Please help.

Thanks in Advance,

Preetha M

The problem was from application server end and not confluence. It is resolved now. Many thanks for your assistance

Try the exact same settings in standard email client and see whether you can replicate the problem.

  • Is there a network connectivity issue between Confluence and the mail server?
  • Is the mail server experiencing problems?
  • Do you have the same problems if you switch to an alternative mail server?

Also, add a screenshot of your configuration here so we can see what you're doing.

Hi,

Many thanks for your suggestions. We dont have any network problems associated with confluence and mail server. They both are in same network. The same problem persists with alternate mail server as well.

When I tried to telnet SMTP server from command prompt, I replicated the same problem when I entered From address. So, I could say it might not be related to confluence at all and have something to do with Windows server.

Though I guess it wudn't be related to confluence, could someone please suggest if any ideas?

Thanks

Preetha
