- The error from the logs indicates that Confluence can't connect to your mail server with the username and password you specified.
- The Exchange/mail server is configured incorrectly.
If your Diagnostic/Test confirmed that you are unable to send a test email, consult your email system administrator for the correct setting.
For Exchange Server 2007/2010/2013/2016
Some administrators have been successful in resolving this by creating a dedicated Exchange receive connector if using an Exchange Server.
