    Having this same issue of email smtp test failing.. I have tried with DSM 'notification setting' and user defined with gmail smtp and local smtp (another synology).. same error (SMTP connection test fail!
    Please check the given parameter.
    --Now the DSM configuration part email config password boxes are greyed out and cant even test that option anymore. Anyone shed any light on this? am using DSM 5.0.. maybe this is the problem? I have added users to the valid recipient list.

    I experienced the same exact problem. I tried applying Gmail SMTP settings within those options. I honestly cannot figure out what I am doing incorrect.

    I am experiencing an issue with a completely blank error box popping up when trying to send a message to a defined user. I have sent the developer an email via his contact submission portal on his homepage.

    @bhotrock: You need to modify your options and add recipients to the recipients configuration.


  8. bhotrock wrote on Feb 06, 2014 at 11:29 AM

    Ok, new problem. When I try to create a new message, or forward an existing notification, I can't enter anything into the TO: field. I can type something there, but when I move to the Subject field, the To field is empty. Click on the dropdown arrow also reveals nothing. I've tried entering a username, a groupname, an email address and nothing will stay in the To field. When I then try to send the message, I receive the error: At least one recipient must be given!

    Thanks for any help anyone can provide!

    Just to follow up. After logging out and logging back in, no more error and the package works.


  10. bhotrock wrote on Feb 06, 2014 at 11:14 AM

    I am also getting the "Sorry the page you are looking for is not found" error. I am running DSM 4.3-3776 on a DS-1511+. I have Perl 5.8.6-0003 installed and running. I have de-selected "Improve protection against cross-site request forgery attacks" in DSM settings, security. Running English language. Any suggestions?
