Thanks for the detailed error message.

There's a good chance that one or more of your credentials are wrong, if the connection to the SMTP service can't be established.

Please crosscheck with a mail client like outlook, thunderbird, etc by configuring a similar outgoing mail channel with the same credentials.

Thanks @Zet man. I'll file an issue, however, it only says 'SMTP Connection Failed' with no other error info. So what do i write in the report?

Is SMTP available on Premium version?

Using SMTP is more reliable than php mailer. However, this component on github does not work on 4.3.1

Thank you !!! :-)

Ok,
then please install and enable the SMTP component.
(https://github.com/opensource-socialnetwork/SMTP)

After the component has been enabled, you'll find and extra entry on your Ossn Admin Dashboard in the "Configure" dropdown menu to enter your SMTP settings.

My Heberger ( Provider ) blocks PHPMailer for security reasons.
That's why I need to use the SMTP server on the site.
How to activate by default SMTP OSSN ??

Here is the ONETSOLUTIONS.NET admin response

ONETSOLUTIONS TICKETS
In the context of securing outgoing emails, it is preferable not to use the MAIL PHP function, which is why we have removed it. MAIL PHP does not require any authentication, so this is an open door to some malicious scripts.

We recommend that you use SMTP, a protocol that requires authentication.

Ossn is using the standard PHP mailer by default, that's why there's no extra SMTP configuration necessary. It should be sufficient to configure and use an email account like [email protected] for the Site Notification Email. In doubt please consult your provider.
