After upgrading to Windows 10, Cygwin smtp email doesn't work.
Get the error:
$ echo "this is a test"|email -s "test" firstname.lastname@example.org
email: FATAL: Smtp error: Lost connection with SMTP server
Here's my config:
Please enter your From: name (e.g., John Doe) [Mike]:
Please enter your From: email address [email@example.com]:
Please enter your Reply-to: email address [firstname.lastname@example.org]:
Enter 1 to use sendmail or 2 to use a SMTP server :
Please enter the address of your SMTP server [smtp.mail.yahoo.com]:
Please enter the SMTP port number : 465 # I've tried ports: 587,25,995 as well with no success
Please select SMTP authentication (1 for none, 2 for LOGIN, 3 for PLAIN) : 2 # I've tried none, and PLAIN also with no success
Please enter your SMTP username [email@example.com]:
Please enter your SMTP password [xpaaswordx]:
Use TLS (true or false)? [true]:
Please check the configuration file /etc/email/email.conf for correctness.
Any suggestions how to debug or alternative ways to get email working to Yahoo?
