I'm trying to setup the email notifications for jira. I want to do this without installing a mail server. Is this possible? And how?
I'm currently experiencing an error "connection refused"
An error has occurred with sending the test email:
com.atlassian.mail.MailException: javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host: localhost, port: 25;
nested exception is:
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
This is not possible, you need an outgoing mail server to send emails from Jira.
It seems to me that you have an authentication error when trying to connect to the mail server, does your mail user have the correct rights in your mail server?
Thank you for your feedback,
I have configured the server as specified in
I don't have any mail users configured. I added these configurations in the server.xml
You'll need to use this configuration :
And request a username and password to your email administrator.
The problem is exactly what Peter points out - you haven't got a valid user defined in the settings.
Jira can't send mail via a server that doesn't know who it is. You need to set up the user in your mail system.
