Hi Sven,

Would you be able to add SSL/TSL flag to the email configuration?

 

From what I've experienced there's really no smtp providers that don't require SSL now.

Thank you so much for this program.

I'm not sure. I'll see what I can do.

You're welcome.  🙂

I'm working on a new version 4 where I will use a different plugin to send mails. This will probably support SSL. I will look into it.

However, it will take some time before the new version is out, as I don't have much time at the moment.

I've solved this by adding SSL support via stunnel. It's a 3rd party software that must always run (invisibly in the background) on the subs PC. I simply created a job in my script ordering the sub to set it up:

[job-IMPORTANT: Setup stunnel]
mustStart=1
run=daily
oneTime=1
text=Reports are automatically sent via e-Mail.
text=All modern e-mail providers use SSL encryption, but this is unfortunately not supported by Virtual Master.
text=Therefore you'll need to add SSL support externally via stunnel.
text=1. Download stunnel from stunnel.org and install it.
text=2. Edit the stunnel.conf file, it should look like this:
text=client = yes
text=[SMTP]
text=accept = 127.0.0.1:25
text=connect = smtp.gmail.com:465
text=
text=3. Make sure stunnel runs and has the edited conf file loaded.
text=4. Test if it works by sending me a report. You will get a message if it fails.

Works well for me.
