Swift Mailer Error Message
#1
Im probably overlooking something some where..
I get this message when I try to test swift mailer with gmails smtp settings.

"There was a problem communicating with SMTP: The SMTP connection failed to start [smtp.gmail.com:465]: fsockopen returned
Error Number 111 and Error String 'Connection refused' "

I've triple check my settings, user/password info, used the example screen shot Ben has on the website, but just haven't had any luck in getting it to work.
Help me please.
Thanks!

Hello! I am having the same problem and after trying to different settings I have also received the connection timed out error and the "Expected response code(s) [250] but got response []" error. Can anyone offer advice on what I could be doing wrong? Thanks so much!

Btw, FORM TOOLS is AWESOME!!!!! I have wasted soooooooooo much time trying other solutions (I'm more of a designer than a programmer) and I can honestly say that this is BY FAR the best one out there!!!!!

UPDATE: the latest error message: "There was a problem communicating with SMTP: Expected response code(s) [250] but got response [553 sorry, your mail was administratively denied. (#5.7.1)]"...Any thoughts??? Thanks.

Hi lpowers,

Thanks for the kind words! I really hope it comes in handy. Smile

I came across this error just once before. If memory serves, the email was being rejected by the SMTP server because the "from" address wasn't the same as the actual website name. I think it was a spam-prevention measure to prevent people sending emails from a website that don't identify themselves as being FROM that website.

I'm not sure if this is what's happening in your case, but it's worth trying out. Just temporarily tweak the "from" field for your form to whatever website you're on (e.g. "test@yoursite.com").

By the way, any error messages you see within Swift Mailer are directly from the SMTP server itself. This can be really handy for Googling the solution. Personally, I hate configuring that module... sometimes it can be really finicky finding the right combination of settings to work with your server, but there's no way around it - so those error messages can be invaluable!

Good luck!

- Ben
