Hi All, Greetings!!! For the past two days, I have got the error like "Sending of the message failed. The message could not not be sent because the connection to Outgoing Server (SMTP) timed out". So I have restared our router (Broadband Modem), and then tried to send the mail, but the result is same. Then I have tried using my mobile network (using hotspot method), this time mail was sent sucessfully. Please help me to solve the issues...

Thanks Karthik

Karthi, Are you still seeing this problem? If so, does setting mail.smtpserver.default.max_cached_connection to 0 help?
