Amazon SES Issue

Hey Guys



I am installing Mautic for the first time and getting everything configured.



I currently have SENDY configured to use AMAZON SES and it is working great. I say this to indicate that my SES is operating great.



I have established SMTP Username & Password in Amazon SES, however, neither the TEST CONNECTION or SEND TEST EMAIL will work.



I have attempted to configure using both AMAZON SES and OTHER SMTP SERVER.



Neither will connect.



This is the error that I am receiving.



Connection could not be established with host email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com [Connection refused #111] Log data: ++ Starting MauticEmailBundleSwiftmailerTransportAmazonTransport !! Connection could not be established with host email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com [Connection refused #111]
++ Starting MauticEmailBundleSwiftmailerTransportAmazonTransport !! Connection could not be established with host email-smtp.us-east-1.amazonaws.com [Connection refused #111]


Help Please :-(

Thanks in advance.

The error message is from Amazon service, it’s not issue of Mautic. Doublecheck your email settings. Pay attention to encryption and port.

I have the same problem. Could you solve this?

Hi I have a problem with Amazon SES.

My configuration:

Service to send mail through: Other SMTP Server
SMTP host: email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com
SMTP port: 587 test with 25 and 465
SMTP encryption type: TLS
SMTP authentication mode: Login and Plain
Username for the selected mail service: amazonuser
Password for the selected mail service: passuser

Connection could not be established with host email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com [Connection timed out #110] Log data: ++ Starting Swift_SmtpTransport !! Connection could not be established with host email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com [Connection timed out #110]
++ Starting Swift_SmtpTransport !! Connection could not be established with host email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com [Connection timed out #110]

I tested credentials with Outlook and works fine.

I checked with other smtp server and Mautic work fine.

I checked with $fp = fsockopen(“tls://email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com”, 465, $errno, $errstr, 10); and this work
I checked with telnet work fine

My Mautic is host on DigitalOcean - Ubunto - 25, 465 and 587 are open.
Please, somebody help?

I was experiencing the same issue and this was resolved by disabling SMTP Restrictions in my server environment as per the attached image.

I was able to use “Amazon SES” as my option in “Service to send Email through”.

Hey Guys, any news about this question?

I ´m having the same problem with Digital Ocean and SES Service.
Someone could help us?

Ed

Guys,

Finally I discovered a solution for Digital Ocean hosting. You need to use another port to open a TLS tunnel between your server and AmazonAWS.
Here you are what I did…

On configuration for Amazon SES on Mautic I put the following data:

Server: email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com (It worked fine also with other Amazon SMTP endpoint)
Port SMTP: 2587
Protocol: TLS

After that, the connection test worked and sending email test also worked.

I hope you can apply this solution to your Mautic hosted on Digital Ocean.

Edsantos 70, was with the same problem, use the 2587 port and the connection test and sending e-mail test functioned properly, but when sending a campaign, has failed to send. You know what the problem?

Mxyzptlk Fishstix, took the test and returns the same result as you mentioned. So I contacted the Digital Ocean and requested the opening of the port 587. After opening the shipping test and sending test emails, settings worked. The problem now is that I do not receive emails in Gmail and clicks and openings are not being accounted for.

I have the same issue with sending via Amazon SES. My host, Bluehost claims it’s not any problem on their side.

I get this error:
Connection could not be established with host email-smtp.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com [Connection timed out #110] Log data: ++ Starting MauticEmailBundleSwiftmailerTransportAmazonTransport !! Connection could not be established with host email-smtp.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com [Connection timed out #110] (code: 0)
++ Starting MauticEmailBundleSwiftmailerTransportAmazonTransport !! Connection could not be established with host email-smtp.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com [Connection timed out #110] (code: 0)

For me this was an issue with the whm firewall (ConfigServer Security & Firewall).

I opened /etc/csf/csf.conf and searched for:

Block outgoing SMTP except for root, exim and mailman (forces scripts/users

to use the exim/sendmail binary instead of sockets access). This replaces the

protection as WHM > Tweak Settings > SMTP Tweaks

This option uses the iptables ipt_owner/xt_owner module and must be loaded

for it to work. It may not be available on some VPS platforms

Note: Run /etc/csf/csftest.pl to check whether this option will function on

this server

SMTP_BLOCK = “1”

Changed that to 0 and then restarted the service and then I could connect.
