Your Jira probably has the wrong credentials for the smtp mail server, or it's being blocked because the server is not configured to accept mail from your Jira server. You need to check the setup details you've given to Jira, and the mailserver's config.

It's quite likely that the logs on the mail server will tell you why it's refusing Jira in more detail.

Hey Nic ...thnx buddy
