How to configure an SMTP server on JIRA?

All is in the title, is anyone know ?

I read the documentation but it does not work, there is something I must not understand.

I'm on an evaluation instance, in localhost.

Done, it was a problem with the antivirus.

You need to follow the docs - go to mail servers and add a SMTP server with the right settings.

You haven't told us what you're doing, what error messages you're getting or even what doc you haven't followed.

I've this : "An error has occurred with sending the test email:
com.atlassian.mail.MailException: com.sun.mail.util.MailConnectException: Couldn't connect to host, port:, 465; timeout 10000;" in the mail log.


I've followed many documentations, tutorials etc... I try to set up a SMTP server to send notifications.


Do you know a documentation for the other kinds of mail addresses ?

Er, you said you already had that.

That's true hehe, I think this is a firewall problem
