The mail settings you entered were not valid. Error thrown was: com.sun.mail.util.MailConnectExcepti

Hi

No emails are getting triggered post build run. I tried entering my mail id under Mail server and go below error:

The mail settings you entered were not valid. Error thrown was: com.sun.mail.util.MailConnectException: Couldn't connect to host, port: smtp.office365.com, 587; timeout 20000; nested exception is: java.net.SocketTimeoutException: connect timed out

 

Do let me know if I need to send other logs. Pls suggest.

 

Thanks

Manish

Hi Manish,

 

You'll want to ensure that your Jira server is able to reach smtp.office365.com. The error indicates a likely network problem, perhaps a firewall is blocking the traffic? Are you using any type of proxy in your environment?

You might try using a tool like telnet smtp.office365.com 587 to see if you are able to get a connection from your Jira server to office365.

Best regards,
Brian
