Allow SSL /TLS in email outbound SMTP settings



  • Currently, I think I can only use STARTTLS as a protocol when setting up an external SMTP relay.

    My email provider mailbox.org, however, uses SSL / TLS on Port 465: https://kb.mailbox.org/display/MBOKB/E-Mail-Einrichtung+-+allgemein (https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=de&sl=de&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fkb.mailbox.org%2Fdisplay%2FMBOKB%2FE-Mail-Einrichtung%2B-%2Ballgemein)

    Setting up smtp.mailbox.org as an SMTP relay therefore fails.



  • @necrevistonnezr Try smtp.mailbox.org at port 587 for STARTTLS. Generally, both are equally secure.



  • @girish Thanks, that worked - I didn't know mailbox.org worked at Port 587 as well.

    Now I have a weird error, though. I had to configure email addresses from my cloudron domain as email aliases (inter alia no-reply@cloudrondomain.tld) in mailbox.org so that I can send mails via such cloudron domain addresses.
    However, when I send a test email from cloudron to my existing mailbox.org address, I get the following error:

    This is the mail system at host mout-f-109.mailbox.org.

  • Are you hosting a custom domain on mailbox.org or do you have a @mailbox.org address? If it's the latter, mailbox is then not really an email relay. Generally, email relays are able to forward all addresses of a domain i.e anything@cloudrondomain.tld.
