- i`ve recently installed SMTP server on my machine http://local-smtp-server.en.softonic.com/download#downloading ,after i  run smtp server then tried to enable mail configuration settings in RTC 4.0 using https://localhost:9443/jts/admin using following values :

enable e-mail notification : true

SMTP Server name : smtp.localhost.com

server port : 25

 

email from address (mymail@yahoo.com)

i got exception when tried to send test mail : unknown SMTP host :smtp.localhost.com; nested exception is : java.net.unknownhostexception: smtp.localhost.com or couldn`t connect to smtp host : smtp.localhost.com, port:25, response:-1 , notice i made test smtp port 25 and it successeded

or exception reading response; nested exception is : java.net.sockettimeoutexception: read timeout when used smtp server from http://www.softstack.com/freesmtp.html

Did i use wrong smtp server ?

did you add 'smtp.localhost.com' to your local hosts file or DNS server?

the DNS (name resolver) is stupid.. it looks in the hosts file, or asks the defined DNS server
'tell me the number for this name'... if the server doesn't know, there is no guessing..

so, just change it to localhost, or 127.0.0.1 or update the hosts file.
