Email problems

Until yesterday i had a mail server on my server, then I decided to switch to Google apps.

From then, troubles has begun to appear.

I replaced my localhost information in web.config with this:

<add key="EnableSiteSettingsSmtpSettings" value="false"/>
<add key="MaskSmtpPasswordInSiteSettings" value="false"/>
<add key="DisableDotNetOpenMail" value="true"/>
<add key="SMTPServer" value="smtp.gmail.com"/>
<add key="SMTPRequiresAuthentication" value="true"/>
<add key="SMTPUseSsl" value="true"/>
<add key="SMTPPort" value="587"/>
<add key="SMTPUser" value="***"/>
<add key="SMTPPassword" value="***"/>
<add key="SMTPTimeoutInMilliseconds" value="30000"/>

everything seems to work, but does not send anything (and no messages on the system log)

then, i disabled dotnetopenmail, and i get an error 500 and this cryptic line in the system log:

504 Unrecognized authentication type

I enabled the SiteSettingsSmtpSettings, and i inputted the internal ip address of an email server that is running on a vm on the server (telnetting that address on port 25 works, and can send email)

when commenting a blog entry, i receive the notification. it works! i thought.

Then i tried to recover the password of a bogus user that i created for testing purposes, but i get this error:

2010-09-20 16:44:34,793 ERROR mojoPortal.Web.UI.Pages.RecoverPassword - unable to send password recovery email. Please check the system.net MailSettings section in web.config

Why it is connecting on localhost??? And only when recovering the password? I cannot understand this

Re: Email problems

Its because certain built in ASP.NET features like password recovery don't use those settings but the ones in the <system.net><mailsettings section

http://www.mojoportal.com/emailconfiguration.aspx

Best,

Joe

Re: Email problems

Oh, again i missed to read the relevant bit of information! Sorry...

And it was also easy to find, in the web.config, just one row below my cursor...:

<!-- ******* email settings
    Note you also need to specify smtp settings further below in system.net section the settings here appply to features but
    the settings in the system.net.mailsettigns section are used by site registration and password recovery -->

ps: can i configure it to work with gmail? it looks like there is no setting for ssl support
