Problems with Email Event Handler

  • Hello all,

    I am currently trying to test out an email event handler, but having some problems. I am getting the error message

    Failed to send email titled "Mango test email" to "". Message: "Authentication failed; nested exception is javax.mail.AuthenticationFailedException"
    In the system settings I am using my gmail account settings:, port=587, use authorization, username=[myemail], password=[mypassword], enable TLS. These settings are what the google documentation says for using SMTP from any email client program.

    So far I have been unable to get this working. As long as I am able to send emails I would be willing to use any server (Any free SMTP servers out there?).

    Hints? Suggestions?


  • Try just your username, without the "".

  • Nope still nothing. Is gmail known to work?

  • Yes. I have an instance using it as we speak (type).

  • Anything interesting in the logs?

  • Figured it out. Just typed my password in wrong haha. Thanks for the help.

  • Hello

    I´m trying to configure the email settings, but I got the same error:

    Failed to send email titled "Mango test email" to "[mymail]". Message: "Mail server connection failed; nested exception is javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host:, port: 587; nested exception is: Connection refused: connect"

    port: 587
    user autorization
    enable TLS

    Any suggestion? thanks in advance
