Email of log files stopped working

Post by Woz »

Reflector was emailing the log files at the end of the task no problem until probably 3-4 versions ago.

Now...
The "Test mail settings..." works fine and sends a test message successfully.
The log file reports that it is "Mailing the log files"

But no email is received :(

The computer is set to shutdown after each backup.

Set a pause of some seconds before the shutdown to make time for the log to be mailed.

Pause included, log reports that it has sent the logs, nothing received :(

2022-03-30 23:38:25 Mailing the log files...
2022-03-30 23:38:25 Flushing the log to file. This can take some seconds. Wait...

2022-03-30 23:38:25 The backup has ended without errors.

2022-03-30 23:38:25 Shutting down the computer. Reason: manual command

Is the shutdown activated by a post-backup event or by the "Shut down when done" command on the user interface?

An update on this: it seems I can have the files emailed, or the computer shut down, but not both.

Tools - options - Log - Mail log files is ticked
I have a pause then a shut down forcibily in the Post-backup events

With these settings, the log file is mailed fine, but the computer doesn't shut down.

I get this error when sending a test email:

An error occurred while testing the mail settings: 535: 5.7.139 Authentication unsuccessful, basic authentication is disabled. [BN0PR10CA0004.namprd10.prod.outlook.com]

Can it be fixed?
