|Author/Date||Can't connect to my mail server, 235 -> SendStart failed.|
|Hi! i.scribe disconnects from my server even though I don't see any errors in the log. Logs from SMTP connection:
What's causing it? Thank you very much for help.
|From my reading of that code, it seems that there is nothing sent after the initial authentication dialog. There are 2 cases that could cause that, no recipients or a malformed recipient, ie no email address for the recipient. Normally I'd expect that to be caught before you get to try and send an email.
But I'd check carefully the email in the outbox, that it has a legitimate looking email address in the recipients box.
Secondly I'd also look in the console for related messages. Often the code will log something there in an unusual error case. Rather than clutter the UI with an actual error dialog.
If that doesn't resolve the issue I might have to add some more logging around the send start code and get you to try a debug build.
|Actually the error reporting could be better. I've changed the "send start failed" error message to include the reason for the failure.
Also just to clarify the conditions for failure, the address is checks for validity is the sending address... the "from" email. So also make sure you have your File -> Options -> Accounts -> [account] -> Identity -> Name+Email set correctly. If you have an invalid email in there it'll cause this sort of error.
