STARTTLS: Email configuration issues

I have konakart up and running but I am having problems with email.  I have configured it to use my gmail account for initial testing and development.  When emails are sent I get the following error:

class javax.mail.MessagingException: 530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first

I have a couple questions:

1)  Is there a way to change the default port that is used for EMAIL?  I don't see a way to change that in the configuration.  I believe that
     gmail needs to use port=465 not 25.
2) Is there a way to send addition configuration properties such as mail.smtp.starttls.enable=true

Thanks in advance for any help or insight into this issue. 


Hi Clanderson,

Good news and bad news  :)

Unfortunately you can't do that in the current version.  For now you will have to have an SMTP server on port 25.

However, we will provide the ability to add any number of these mail properties in the next release.



Well that explains why I could not figure it out. :)  Thanks for the info.




If you haven't already noticed...   email set-up is a lot more flexible and customizable in the latest KonaKart version.

You can even find an example of using google's SMTP server for sending mail in the download kit (although it's commented out by default).
