Hello there, thanks for sharing with the Community!

Could you clarify a few points for us:

  1. Which Atlassian product are you using?
  2. Has this worked at some point in the past?
  3. Was there any kind of change to the Application?
  4. Are you able to reach the email server through other means?

Let us know!

Hello guys,

can't configuring the SMTP Mail Server for Jira  v 8.7.1 for localhost.
The same problem "SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out",  as @Ramanathan   encountered
