That means what it says.  Your Jira server cannot reach the email server you have pointed it to.  Either the server is not there (connection settings wrong?) or the network is blocking it (probably a firewall)

Thanks Nic !

As I am new to Jira, I am not sure how/where to Correct the connection setting. Is there any documents that i can refer to ?

 

Thanks,

Not that I know of, off the top of my head, but I don't think you need docs.

To add an email server, go to Admin -> Incoming email, and click "add", or click "edit" on an existing one.

  It will pop up a box asking for connection settings, and you need to give it the details for a valid email server that Cloud can reach over the internet.
