It's connecting ok, but the credentials are wrong, or the user is not set up correctly on the mail server.

Last time I did this, it was because we had moved server during the upgrade (export from JIRA 5 on server 1, create empty new JIRA 7 on server 2, import data), and the mail server had been secured so that user JIRA-sender could only log in from the ip address of server 1.  So that needs to be checked too.

Hi Nic,

 

Thanks for your support.

Could you please guide me the steps,how to check(JIRA-sender could only log in from the ip address of server 1)

 

You need to look at the configuration of the account on the mail server.  It's the mail server telling JIRA the connection is refused, so you need to look at that to find out why it's refusing access.
