{SOLVED} Error trying to send a test email through smtp with SSL


Hi, I configured properly the emails settings, my smtp server is ok and running ssl authentication, but when trying to send a test email through the testrail app, it returns error :

Sending the test email failed.
Please see the following messages and server output for details:
The SMTP connection failed to start [ssl://]: fsockopen returned Error Number 0 and Error String ‘’




I finally desactivated the “use secure connection for sending emails (SSL)” checkbox,

and now sending emails function works well.


Hi Fred,
