When using the Email component, you specify typical values such as the SMTP server, the user name, and password. The Email component is straightforward, especially if you are used to working with TCPIP servers and the SMTP and POP3 protocols. (For more, see the Email topic in Application Development Using LiveCycle Workbench ES2.)
Unfortunately, when working with the Email component, you may encounter a situation that can lead to some frustration. When testing your process in Workbench ES2, an exception may be thrown when the Email component attempts to send an email message. The LiveCycle ES2 log file displays the following information:
2010-04-12 13:31:46,406 ERROR [com.adobe.idp.workflow.dsc.invoker.WorkflowDSCInvoker] An exception was thrown with name javax.mail.MessagingException message:Could not connect to SMTP host: myserver, port: 25 while invoking service EmailService and operation send and no fault routes were found to be configured.
This may lead you to triple check your Email server configuration settings, rebuild your processes, test them over and over again, and so forth. If this occurs, check your anti-virus software, it may be blocking port 25. Once the anti-virus software lets you route messages through port 25, your LiveCycle ES2 processes that use the Email component will work nicely (assuming that all other settings are valid).
