E-mail notifcation not working
We have SQL Backup 7.2 installed on our server and when we run the backup job, no notification gets sent to any of the recipients. The error we receive is: Warning 151: MAILTO error: Failed to send mail. (Socket Error # 10060 Connection timed out.)
When I check the server options and go to the Email Setting tab, everything is setup correctly there. When I hit the "Send a Test Email..." button, I receive a "Socket Error #10060 Connection timed out." error message. If I hit the "Send a Test Email..." a second or third time though, the e-mail sends. If I wait five minutes and hit the "Send a Test Email..." button again, I receive the "Socket Error #10060 Connection timed out." error once again. If I change e-mail servers, the same thing happens. Has anyone ever ran into this? Or can anyone explain exactly how an e-mail notification is sent from SQL Backup so I can try and pinpoint where the issue is happening or see if something is shutting a service down? Thank you in advance.
