    Hello I try to connect to a mail server and have not been able to establish a working connection.

    When I enter the correct network adress and port, then Test Studio throws an error.

    While I am able to connect to the server via Windows Telnet.

    Our server is postfix.

     

    So, how exactly do the fields need to filled?

    When I don't enter a password, does Test Studio try to login without a password, use it anonymously, or not bother with authentification at all?

     

    Right now I cannot find what is wrong on my configuration because I don't know what Test Studio is trying to do. I just know that it fails.
    Every bit of help is appreciated and I will do my best to help you help me.

    Hi Can,

    The communication with the mail server is holded by the scheduling service. You may enter any credentials in the Configuration Email Server window. They will be used when the scheduling server supposed to use them - usually at run time. When you press "Apply" - the service is restarted.

    If you are getting an error message during the configuration you have to follow the instructions how to start the services described in the documentation (solution 2).

    Let us know when the service is running do you still have a problem with the configuration.

    I tried solution 2.
    I did not do anything for me and I don't know why it should.
    The error is not during the installation.

    Hi Can,

    For mail sending we use .net mail client integrated and have provided UI to collect common mail configuration data.

    We have not yet seen the error you are facing - can you please show some snapshot with it and generate application log as described here in order to see what is the exception and error message?

    Best Regards,
