email from TDA?


#1

Thanks,
Chris

Hello,

I’m trying to send an email from TDA. For the “server” field, I tried both “xxx.xxx.sbc.com” and “xxx.sbc.com” (where the xxx’s mask actual values obtained from MS Outlook). I get this error:

Start email
Setting up SMTP email
Socket connection has been refused by remote host. InnerException message follows: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it
Failed

Any ideas?

Basically what you need here is an “SMTP” host. Usually this communicates on port 25. If you are running exchange server that has different delivery options than SMTP and might not be running the SMTP service at all in which case this can’t be used by Toad to send emails.
