    Seam Mail on port other than 25

    Damian Harvey Master

      Is Seam Mail working for anyone on a port other than port 25?

      I've got it setup in my components.xml as such:

      <mail:mail-session host="smtpserver" port="587" username="myusername" password="mypassword" debug="true"/>
      

      however it seems to choke and the debug produces "Can't send command to SMTP host".

      I've got exactly the same config setup for a stand-alone JavaMail J2SE test harness and it works fine. When I change components.xml to use an SMTP server working on port 25 (my ISP as opposed to my webhost) it then works.

      It's not a relaying issue as it works from the test harness. I'm scratching my head a bit. In the debug log for the Seam app it does say that it is connected to the smtpserver on port 587.

      Any ideas?

      Thanks,

      Damian.

          Yes it should be (the examples use port 2525 with no problem). Post the debug log from javamail.

            Thanks. I'll do a few more tests.

            This is the debug log from my Seam App:

              Yeah, thats connecting ok on port 587. My only guess is that Seam mail uses STARTTLS by default which might be causing problems here... What mail server (and version do you use)?
