Hello,

Great script, but it seems that smtp.live.com refuses any connections. I have tried other scripts that also work well with TLS and Gmail, same result.

Any ideas?

Thanks !

Did you try using port 587?

Hello,

Yes, tried all combinations:

Ports: 25, 465, 587
SSL/TLS/none

Seems smtp.live.com just refuses the connection on their end. I don't think it's the script, unless live now requires some token to validate a 'device' of sorts...

You may be blocked by a firewall in the network that you are sending the message from.

Hello,

Actually Microsoft responded to my question:

Quoted:
If you don't send the second hello after STARTTLS, the connection will fail before authentication takes place.

Does this makes sense?

Where in the class should I be looking at ?

Thank you.

No, no firewall, works fine with Gmail.

You can set the class variable smtp_start_tls to 1.

Hello,

Yes I did set the start tls voption.

Microsoft claims an additional step:

"If you don't send the second hello after STARTTLS, the connection will fail before authentication takes place."

A second Hello?

But I really don't have time to troubleshoot this, and I pretty much gave up sending via hotmail/outlook.

Thanks for the help.

As I said the class works marvellously with Gmail.

If you enabled debug support you can see that after the STARTTLS command, the communication is restarted with a new EHLO command. So that should not be your problem.
