PDW email
« on: 26 Jan 2021, 21:33:01 »
Hi,
I am running PDW 3.2b01 and can’t get the filter email working.
I have BT email with SSL.  I have set all the settings as per my BT email account, have ticked SSL, Port 465
For SMTP host: mail.btinternet.com
To: my own email address
From: my own email address

I’ve ticked Enable authentication and have the Username as my BT username@btinternet.com and my BT email account password.

When I try Test, I get:

HELO 117.0.0.1
220 re-prd-rgout ....ESMTP service ready
AUTH LOGIN
220 re-prd-rgout....
A random string of characters starting V2VvZ....
501 AUTH command unavailable

I’ve tried tweaking a lot, but keep getting this message.
Any suggestions.

Thank you!
Geoff

117.0.0.1 is not the IP address for mail.btinternet.com.

Are you sure it's not 127.0.0.1 (localhost)?

Yes, you’re right, it is 127 - I have it correct in the PDW set up, just typed it wrong in my post!
