For those having failed sending test email message, please check that you’re entering the correct password. Secondly, during my investigation I found this log in the NAS:

    this hasnt worked for me. I keep getting failed sending test message. I tried ports 587, 25, and 465 and even created rules on my router. I have read through a lot of posts and nothing seems to work. Do you have any ideas as to what I could try?
