SSL/TLS SMTP notifications not working
had conversation with a colleague, who was experiencing issues since a couple of months with non-working notifications.
Email notification seems to be not working when used with authentication. Works fine without authentication, and we tested with 3 different email providers. Version used to test = 2.3.1_p5
After some testing, I noticed the password field in the gui always reverted to empty after a save. When checking a backup xml, I saw that node password (under notifications\smtp) is also empty? (no hashed pwd?)
Dumb question: Could it be that the password simply isn't saved, causing the issue?
bump… (if I did something wrong that's also fine, you can tell me ;))
Really sorry guys I'm putting this again and again on top of the thread list, but really seeking an answer to why this isn't working…
Added thread to watchlist - will need notifications soon.
Also - could you capture network traffic / direct to your own (maybe test) mailserver to be sure it attempts to auth with blank password?
And in post https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=114205.0 everything works in 2.3.1
