SMTP Connection Timeout?

I'm having problems sending out emails with JIRA.

Connection tests successfully but when I try to send a test email, it shows the following Mail Log:

An error has occurred with sending the test email:
com.atlassian.mail.MailException: javax.mail.MessagingException: Exception reading response;
nested exception is:
java.net.SocketTimeoutException: Read timed out

I was able to fix it by changing my SMTP server from smpt.myhostingprovider.com to smtp.mydomainname.com

Thanks for all your replies.

You need to check your network on why the JIRA server cannot connect to your mail server. Try to telnet your mail server on your JIRA server.

Another possibility is that the mailserver may not be able to respond due to loading.
