I have been using the mail action to send emails triggered by rules via a gmail account. This used to work properly in the past but suddenly stopped working from June 1st.
Every time the rule tries to send a mail there is no mail sent but the following can be found in the logs instead:
2020-06-05 15:25:32.886 [WARN ] [ab.binding.mail.internal.SMTPHandler] - Sending the email to the following server failed : smtp.gmail.com:587
2020-06-05 15:25:32.888 [WARN ] [ab.binding.mail.internal.SMTPHandler] - com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPSendFailedException: 530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first.
I could not find out how to fix this. I am using Google 2 factor authentication but I have defined an application password and it used to work in the past. I have also set a new password now but it did not change.
In the end I got my send mail for a gmail account also working. However I did miss the actions.get(“mail”, “mail:smtp:gmail”) in the official documentation and tried to update this in github (hope i did everything corrrect) My proposal is:
val mailActions = getActions("mail","mail:smtp:justalogicalname") // add in paperUI - configurations - things (from mail binding)
mailActions.sendMail("email@example.com", "Test", "This is the message.", attachmentUrlList)
Wrote this in the style “Openhab for dummies” (so just for myself)
I also benefit from another remark that if in mail.cfg a line is put on comment again this value might still be active.
At the moment I have a small cosmetic problem in the log viewer:
[WARN ] [javax.mail ] - expected resource not found: /META-INF/javamail.default.address.map
Not sure how to solve this (shows up each time an email is generated.
Yesterday I updated to openHAB 2.5.10-1 (Release Build) with the newst java version
This Java version could potentially cause issues, is this one of them?
