Not a lot of information to help you with this. What mailserver are you using? Sendmail? Exchange?

What protocol does it connect to? POP, IMAP, IMAPS?

In case of secure protocol. Are the certificates installed? Try downloading SSLPoke from the Atlassian pages: https://confluence.atlassian.com/kb/unable-to-connect-to-ssl-services-due-to-pkix-path-building-failed-779355358.html

and make sure you can ping it.

Did you get any errors in the logs?

Add more info and ill do my utmost to help out.
