test email error - The following From address failed

Postby stinkybee » 10:51am, Mon 22 Apr, 2013

I sent a test email after installing and it worked fine. I then came back to it after a couple of days and now I cannot send a test email and get the followinf error:

SMTP -> FROM SERVER: SMTP -> NOTICE: EOF caught while checking if connectedSMTP -> ERROR: AUTH not accepted from server: Sent test mail to: [my email] failed

and in the event log:

Mailer Error: The following From address failed: [my email]

I have been searching for quite some time but have not found any answers. Can anyone help with this?

This suggests that there is a problem with the email address or password that you are using to authenticate with the mail server
