Title: Email Plugin: vSock read error
Post by LosAltosJoe on Apr 16th, 2009 at 7:37am
I'm trying to use the email plugin to send an email when a new member is added to a directory.  I have been unable to connect to the SMTP server and keep getting a "vSock read error".  SMTP Server: smtp.att.yahoo.com/port 465.  POP3: pop.att.yahoo.com/port 990.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!  Joe

Hello Joe,

Doesn't Yahoo's SMTP connection require TLS or STARTTLS (secure connections)? I know that GMail requires it. As our email component doesn't natively support TLS, you will need to "wrap" the connection using stunnel. A description how to do that for GMail is here: http://watchdirftp.blogspot.com/2009/02/gmail-as-your-smtp-server.html

If Yahoo requires a secure connection, it should work quite similar to Gmail.

Gert,

You are the man!!  Stunnel was exactly what I needed to use the Google SMTP and allow WD to send me emails.  I really appreciate your help.

Regards,
Joe
