2015-10-09 11:27:20 +0100 commented answer Mail merge to email is it a windows 10 bug

Hi Alex, thanks for that. Ive tried different versions including the one i use on my windows xp machine but all have the same problem. Got to be windows 10 i think !

I will have to sit on the sidelines until a fix comes along.

Thanks again

I cannot get mail merge to email to work in Libreoffice writer, when I test the settings (tools/options/libreoffice writer/mailmerge to e-mail) I get the following :

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 'runtimeerror'="">: No SSL support included in this Python, traceback follows C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 5\program\python-core-3.3.3\lib\smtplib.py:663 in function starttls() [raise RuntimeError("No SSL support included in this Python")] C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 5\program\mailmerge.py:120 in function connect() [self.server.starttls()]

Note : always passes network test.(blue tick) Red X for server test.

If I create a new user profile (delete user profile to force creation) on first entering my email details the test passes, (2 blue ticks)once I close the program upon opening again the test returns the error above again.

I am using windows 10 with LibreOffice 5.0.2 x86_64

I have tried installing libreoffice 4.2.6 which works fine on my windows xp machine but get the same problem.

Seems to be a Windows 10 bug ?

Any ideas ?

Thank you in advance.

I'm leaning towards this being a windows problem (i am running windows 10), i installed libreoffice 4.2.6 which works fine on my windows xp computer. Same mail merge to email problem occurs

2015-10-05 17:52:30 +0100 asked a question LibreOffice Writer mail merge to email wont connect to my smtp server

I have been using 4.2.6 on Windows XP and the mail merge to email works fine.

I now have windows 10 with 5.0.2 x64 after setting up email connection details I test and get this :

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 'runtimeerror'="">: No SSL support included in this Python, traceback follows C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 5\program\python-core-3.3.3\lib\smtplib.py:663 in function starttls() [raise RuntimeError("No SSL support included in this Python")] C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 5\program\mailmerge.py:120 in function connect() [self.server.starttls()]

Any ideas, Windows 10 problem perhaps ?

Thank you.

If i delete 'user' to force creation of a new profile when i first enter details at tools/options/writer/ mail merge to email and test the settings it passes both tests. After closing the program then re-opening writer testing the settings again returns the message posted. (always passes network test)
