Error reporting for SMTP Email

Recommended Posts

I have several users and passwords set up for sending automated SMTP emails but I am concerned of script failure if a user happens to change his or her password.

Therefore, I am building a daily script for the management team that tests each SMTP email and password and reports errors before the script is performed later in the day.

Any advice on how to collect and test/report SMTP send errors?

 

Thank you

With standard FM script steps, you only get error 1501-1507 returned. These errors relate to the communication with the SMTP server you're sending through. If the user mailbox exists on the SMTP server you'll get a 1501 error (authentication failed).

But why do you need user authentication details? You can simply send an email with the from email address of whichever user and authenticate to the server using a different email address.
