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.
