    I am getting an exception " System.Net.Mail.SmtpException:: Server does not support secure 

    connections." when I try sending emails using office365.

    Under Administration >> Settings >> Advance >> System>> SMTP, I populated the following settings:

    Port: 587
    Password: xxxxxxx
    DeliveryMethod: Network
    EnableSSL: [ Checked ]
    Timeout: 10000
    EmailSubjectEncoding: uft-8 
    EmailBodyEncoding: utf-8

    I am not sure why I am having this problem. It works in my local machine but it 

    doesn't work in production or my build environment.

    Any ideas why I am having this problem?

    Thank you for your time,

    Hi Sarlin,

    I think you need to change your port to 465, since you are using SSL. I'm using port 587 together with TLS, but I don't think that protocol is supported inside these SMTP parameters.

    Kind regards,
