Hello,

When I am sending mails from my website and I get the following error message:
-------------------------------------------------------------
Could not connect to SMTP host: mail.sdfpak.org,
port: 25;
nested exception is:
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to
SMTP host: mail.sdfpak.org, port: 25;
nested exception is:
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
at com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPTransport.openServer(SMTPTransport.java:695)
at com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPTransport.protocolConnect(SMTPTransport.java:168)
at
javax.mail.Service.connect(Service.java:227)
at
javax.mail.Service.connect(Service.java:131)
.
.
.
.
-------------------------------------------------------------

One thing is worth noting that I can send emails from my local machine using same smtp server after authenticating the server. But SMTP connections are refused on the machine where I have hosted the website.

Any ideas how to solve this problem or what is causing it?


regards,

You mentioned two different machines. Sounds like your ISP only accepts connections from their customer machines. Your website box is hosted by a different ISP, correct? This type of limitation is set up to foil spammers.

Does your website ISP have a mail server you can use?
