i copied the example in the tutorial and changed the recipient for my needs.
but i can't get it to work to send an email.

it always throws an error:


java.lang.RuntimeException: Empty writer returned: 503 Bad sequence of commands. You must specify the recipients of a message before you can send it

even with adding two addresses ....

SMTPSender.To.Add("[email protected]")
SMTPSender.To.Add("[email protected]")

it shows

ToastMessageShow(SMTPSender.To.Size, True) = 0

what is possibly wrong here?

it works fine when i use my own google email address and the google smtp server.
but when i use my own smtp server it throws an error.

this is the code...

B4X:
Sub Process_Globals
   Dim SMTP1 As SMTP
End Sub

Sub Activity_Create(FirstTime As Boolean)
    If FirstTime Then
        SMTP1.Initialize("mysmtpserver", 25, "myusername", "mypassword", "SMTP1")
        SMTP1.UseSSL = False
        
    End If
    SMTP1.To.Add("myemailaddress")
    SMTP1.Subject = "This is the subject"
    SMTP1.Body = "This is the message body."
    SMTP1.Send
End Sub

Sub SMTP1_MessageSent(Success As Boolean)
   
    If Success Then
        ToastMessageShow("Message sent successfully", True)
    Else
        ToastMessageShow("Error sending message", True)
        Log(LastException.Message)
    End If
End Sub

i would say that it might be a problem of my smtp server, but i use the same
account data with mozilla thunderbird and it works.
i don't use password encryption in thunderbird and no tls.

no, the size of the list is ok. that was my fault.
i've overlooked this...

"Note that the message fields are cleared after this method to allow you to send new messages with the same object."

...so of course in "_MessageSent" it is empty.

when i send the message in Activity_Create i get

java.net.SocketException: The connection was reset

when i do it in a Button1_Up it says:

java.lang.RuntimeException: Empty writer returned: 503 Bad sequence of commands. You must specify the recipients of a message before you can send it

it seems as if there is a problem when initializing!?

in the case when i send it in Activity_Create i get the connection error.
when i put it in a button_up event like the following....i get a different error


B4X:
Sub Button1_Up
   SMTP1.To.Add("myemailaddress")
        SMTP1.Subject = "This is the subject"
        SMTP1.Body = "This is the message body."
   SMTP1.Send
End Sub

java.lang.RuntimeException: Empty writer returned: 503 Bad sequence of commands. You must specify the recipients of a message before you can send it

...as you can see in the new logfile.

i changed it to _Click, but i still get:


B4X:
Default buffer size used in BufferedReader constructor. It would be better to be explicit if an 8k-char buffer is required.

Hi,

I know this is an old thread but does anyone know what was the outcome of this error is because I am getting it too when using the Net Library SMTP.Send for emailing. I have a good wifi connection and can 'see' the internet too.
I am calling from a click event, so its not being called multiple times.

:sign0085:

Thanks,
carl

      txtTo.RequestFocus 
   End If
   
End Sub

Sub cmdClose_Click

   Activity.Finish 
   
End Sub

The three lines to add the attachment file that are remmed made no difference. My smtp details are all valid (can post separately if you need the credentials). My server does not require SSL. The error log I got to print twice so that I could see from the logs which was specific to my error. But the filter gave the exact response as for the first post.
Also I am using a vodafone 858 (own brand??) phone with Android 2.2.2
Many thanks.
Also, the + sign in the Sender property is my user name. I have also tried it with the @ symbol but with the same results.

As a follow up..

I googled this and various answers were to try different ports.
I tried 25, 26, 587 and 465. All to no avail.
