I have noticed a LOT of messages almost daily now for SMTP email “socket” errors coming back from Toad Data Point. The end of my automations are supposed to send an SMTP mail message saying that the process is complete. Just one out of a lot of automation processes is coming back with this error quite frequently now. It emails me and says that the automation failed on the SMTP email because “a connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond”
The interesting thing is that the error message itself set up in the settings uses the same SMTP settings, so it emails this error just fine to me :).
It’s not a huge concern and there very well may be some connection or timeout issues with our SMTP server, so what I’m wondering is if there is a way to increase the “timeout” somehow so that it has longer to try to send the email? Is there anything that can be done as far as settings to help resolve this here? If not, is there any automation “if” things that I can put together to do a retry?
