Configured the SMTP settings as per the documentation for smtps to connect to my email server.
It fails to send either the test email (on startup) and fails to send invites (says it failed to send invite).
What I know to be true is that the email addresses (from and to) are correct, the host is correct and can be telneted to from the alfresco machine, the password is correct (tested via webmail), the port is correct, smtps_auth is set to true.
Still the error in the alfresco log says it failed to insantiate the mail bean, which my research tells me is because the connection info is incorrect. All settings treble checked and correct.
How can I troubleshoot further?
