[Solved] SMTPAuthenticationError using Django


Recommended Posts


I am trying to set up an automatic email function in Django, I added an email account in plesk and entered the values provided in Django settings.py:


I disabled incoming mail and Plesk login for this mailaddress. I merely want to use it to send a confirmation mail.

I made sure that the passwords match on Plesk and Django, however, I am getting an authentication error. Am I overlooking something?


Kind regards,

I changed the host, port and ssl settings as you described. I am still getting the authentication error. Do I perhaps have to check the box that says: "Can be used to log in to Plesk  (username: test@tdevries.helioho.st)" to use the smtp mail?
