Email notification


Recommended Posts

Getting this log after connecting to the mailserver


smtpWait: "250 DSN"

smtpSend: "AUTH LOGIN"

smtpWait: "504 Authentication method not enabled"

smtpReset: AUTH LOGIN expected 334, response 504

smtpSend: "QUIT"

soccRecv: connection unexpectedly closed

soctPreDispose: maximum queue depth was 4

soctSetThread: socket thread now 0xb1293000

soctSetThread: socket thread now 0xb1697000


So, authentication problem?

Yep. Your server is not doing SMTP AUTH, just straight SMTP. Don't use AUTH (username/password) for the email notification.


I must say that the improved logging in Retrospect 8 is a great improvement over having to do SMTP chit chat via Telnet to figure out what is going wrong with email notification.

I'm having trouble with email notifications too.

Have tried the suggestions here using different port numbers with and without authentication.


Each time the log shows;


holuFinished: lookup() failed with error -530

soctPreDispose: maximum queue depth was 0


Any ideas?
