I just upgraded to LO 5.0.0.5. with a EN_US interface. I run an Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS OS with a EN_US UTF-8 gui.

When setting up mail merge in the Option Panel, at LibreOffice Writer > Mail Merge E-mail and subsequently testing, I get:

  • Establish network connection Failed
  • Find outgoing server Failed

LibreOffice could not connect to the outgoing mail server. Check your system's settings and the settings in LibreOffice. Check the server name, the port and the secure connections settings


< class 'poplib.error_proto' >: -ERR EOF, traceback follows

/usr/lib/python3.4/poplib.py:132 in function _getline() [if not line: raise error_proto('-ERR EOF')]

/usr/lib/python3.4/poplib.py:148 in function _getresp() [resp, o = self._getline()]

/usr/lib/python3.4/poplib.py:104 in function __ init __() [self.welcome = self._getresp()]

/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/mailmerge.py:405 in function connect() [self.server = poplib.POP3(server, port, timeout=tout)]

My settings are for a gmail account, using my regular email as user@gmail.com

Outgoing server:

Server name: smtp.googlemail.com

Port: 465

Use secure connection (SSL)

I further select:

The outgoing mail server (SMTP) requires authentication.

The outgoing mail server uses the same authentication as the incoming mail server.

Incoming mail server

server name: pop.googlemail.com

port 995

type: POP3

This does not seem to work. I have triple-checked that all those settings correspond to my Thunderbird settings.

Does anybody know why this does not work as expected ? Thank you.

The servers for Gmail are .gmail.com, not .googlemail.com
