SMTP sending email from Yahoo not working

I had a flow that was working really well. It triggered whenever we received an email from a certain user, then it would ask ChatGPT to write out an email response, then SMTP would send out the email using the data collected. But one day, it just stopped working, and I can’t connect to SMTP step as it gives me the error:
“Connection failed: {“code”:“ETIMEDOUT”,“command”:“CONN”}”

The current flow has 4 steps:

  1. New Email (imap)
  2. Ask ChatGPT (to turn info from email to json files)
  3. Code (to parse the info from chatgpt)
  4. Send Email (smtp)

Step 4 is when the problem happens. Steps 1-3 work fine.

I’ll attach an images to see if it helps.

@myrrh Are you using an App Password or your normal email password?

Hi, i opened it on github issue, but there is no one answer, so i create this topic.
I try to add foxmail by using smtp connection,
Its say Connection failed: {“code”:“ETIMEDOUT”,“command”:“CONN”}
port: 465

This is a possible bug, I merged the two topics so we can check this out. Please provide us with any information that can be used to confirm/reproduce this bug.

App password. It was working before, but one day it suddenly stopped working and I don’t know why

Hi @myrrh and @Johnny_Wong

Can you please try click on use SSL? and check if it’s working

Already try, not working

Same issue here, unfortunately. I’ve tried multiple SMTP Servers both receiving the same errors onf TLS and SSL. Double checked the password multiple times on each server.

here is the other image:

@Johnny_Wong @myrrh I will try to make an account on qq and yahoo and get back to you

@Bram I think this is different since gmail is working, please set the port to 993 and enable TLS


Hi Abuaboud,

Thanks for your quick reply,

I used another SMTP server strato in this case. unfortunately same error.

Please see this reference from strato 10 sec read. E-mail verzenden via SSL of TLS | STRATO

Also 993 is for IMAP not SMTP.

Ouch :sweat_smile: , I will take look at strato as well, for gmail you can use Gmail Piece it support sneding emails without SMTP in mean time :smiley:

Thanks, I’ve tried this one too but another issue same result. If you would like me to test anything else please let me know.

Sorry for Late reply

Can you please try again now (Published 0.1.2)

Unfortunately no succes…

I could create you an account from the Strato server for testing, would you be interested? If so please DM me, so i can send u some credentials.

We are even on the latest version :wink:

Hi @Bram Dm’d thank you!

Hi, I’m facing the same problem as well and got the same error code.

The: “Etimedout, command conn” one.

Enabling TLS gives me a longer error code as well.

Any resolution to this issue?

Hi, today is November 23. Still same error. SMTP it is a big one! Please take a look to this bug!
