Error when setting gmail server for outgoing emails

Hi All,

I just installed Jira 5 and I try to set gmail.smtp for outgoing emails.

I did the following steps according to the documentation (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Using+Gmail+as+a+JIRA+Mail+Server):

1. I moved the activation-1.1.1.jar and mail-1.4.1.jar from Atlassian\JIRA\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\lib to the Atlassian\JIRA\lib

2. I pasted the

<Resource name="mail/GmailSmtpServer"
    auth="Container"
    type="javax.mail.Session"
    mail.smtp.host="smtp.gmail.com"
    mail.smtp.port="465"
    mail.smtp.auth="true"
    mail.smtp.user="myusername@gmail.com"
    password="mypassword"
    mail.smtp.starttls.enable="true"
    mail.smtp.socketFactory.class="javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory"
/>

to the server.xml file

3. Iconfigured on the outgoing email settings page the following:

Service Provider: Custom

Protocol: SMTP

SMTP Port: 25

TLS: checked

JNDI Location: java:comp/env/mail/GmailSmtpServer

Is there anything else to set???

When I test the connection I get a stack trace:


Oops - an error has occurred

The class it complains about is in guava-10.0.1.jar file. Try copying (don't move) that as well and see if that fixes it. A shot in the dark!

Hi Jobin,

you mean copying to the Atlassian\JIRA\lib as the 2 jar files?

Thanks,

Rumi

yes. try that.

Hi Jobin,

it works now.

Thanks,

Rumi

Hi Rumi,

Did you restart JIRA after step 2? It would need a restart after moving JAR files and changing server.xml

Andrew.

Hi Andrew,

I did. I restarted several times.
