Did you enter a username and password on the email setup page, or leave those empty?

by the way, i have already checked the boxes TSL and SSL but the error persists...
i have tried to change the sendemail.py, adding a call to "smtp.login(username, password)" bellow of "smtp = smtplib.SMTP(serverURL)" ... and also failed.

Are you sure that the server accepts credentials? What happens if you clear them out (because the server appears to be telling you that it won't take them)?

Is regular mail working i.e when you use mail from the command line?

Its quite an old post but i faced the same error a while ago-
It seems that if you use auth params within the email settings you should specify the server=yourmailserver:port parameter within your sendemail search command. The sendemail command uses the localhost on default.
