Hi All,

After several unsuccessful connection attempt on my Gmail account ( port 465) we can see that the file does not load the library SMTP_SSL but only SMTP

If I replace the line: self.server = smtplib.SMTP(server, port, timeout=tout) by: self.server = smtplib.SMTP_SSL(server, port, timeout=tout) in the file the connection work fine.

Is it possible to change this file ( to supports connections of type: SMTP and SMTP over SSL on port 465.

Thank you.

I made the change you suggest and the problem still remains. Libre office's mail merge e-mail function is broken.

PS I have successfully connected to yahoo mail smtp servers, but mail merged letter (as pdf attachement) won't be delivered either...
