I am testing automail through a standalone java class. These exceptions i am getting while running
javax.mail.SendFailedException: Sending failed; nested exception is: javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host: smtpout.secureserver.net, port: 25; nested exception is: java.net.SocketException: Software caused connection abort: connect at javax.mail.Transport.send0(Transport.java:219) at javax.mail.Transport.send(Transport.java:81) at com.virtusa.automail.SendMailUsingAuthentication.postMail(SendMailUsingAuthentication.java:74) at com.virtusa.automail.SendMailUsingAuthentication.main(SendMailUsingAuthentication.java:25)
This usually means that some piece of software is blocking your attempt to connect to your smtp server. Typically this can be a virus scanner doing port blocking or a fire wall doing the same. Check both of those things are not interfering. One trick is to try connecting via telnet; if you can do that, you can probably connect via JavaMail. Its also a good idea to speak to your server/network admin people to see if there is something you might not know about that is doing this.
