Hi,

I have to configure WFNM in R12.1.3. I was given an SMTP server ip address, an email and password.

1.Through outlook I am able to send that mails to gmail or yahoo mail through that mail id.

2. Tried telnet from concurrent manager server node (of course its a single node installation), it working properly. But I have to enter username and password in base64 encoded format.

telnet esmtp.example.com 25
220 esmtp.example.com ESMTP
ehlo esmtp.example.com
250-PIPELINING
250-8BITMIME
250-SIZE 255555555
250 AUTH LOGIN PLAIN CRAM-MD5
auth login
S: 334 VXNlcm5hbWU6
avlsdkfj ---> my mail id in base64 encoded form
334 UGFzc3dvcmQ6
lkajsdfvlj --> my mail id password in base64 encoded form

ok, go ahead

Now I will be able to send mails from my given mail id.

R12.1.3 feature says WF java mailer supports smtp authenticated login.

In Workflow NM configuration page, I tried the following options

1. servername
2. mymaulid in normal format
3. my password in normal format.

Configured successfully. But it is trying to send mails from local host which doesnt relay to external domains. Unable to establish an authenticated session with smtp.

1. servername:25
2. mymaulid in normal format
3. my password in normal format.

I used command line tools from middle tier to connect to smtp server.

establised session wit smtp server
DEBUG SMTP: useehlo true useAuth false
javax.mail.AuthenticationFailedException Unable to connect to account

Any Suggestions?
