Hi,

I am new to Splunk. I configured the email Settings and tried to send email through alert.

But with no success i read the python.log file and received the error as below.

ERROR sendemail:443 - (501, '5.5.4 Invalid Email address', u'splunk@DESKTOP-******') while sending mail

Can anyone please help me on this issue. Did i miss any configuration.

Thanx in advance

Did this work with 6.5.x? When I read your post it looks from me that this is a new error that you get with 6.6.0

Your from email address needs to be valid as per email RFC standards. Splunk@domain.com for example.

If you upgraded from a previous version, make sure you don't have a modified sendemail.py in the bin folder of your search app.
