Hi I am trying out ACS. When I tried to save my SMTP setting, I got an error: "SMTP Check failed. Hostname was not match with server certificate." Why is this so and how to resolve it? Thanks in advance.

    Hi I disabled port 465 but even if I disabled TLS on ACS, I am still getting the error! it seems that although TLS = false, the Appcelerator backend is trying to use TLS as it returns always the error: SMTP Check failed hostname was not match with the server certificate.

    Can you send us the details (smtp settings) to find out more? You can either post them or email me at egomez@appcelerator.com Hope hearing from you soon.

    Hi, I found this is a bug on ACS. I was able to setup smtp by setting tls as false, boolean not string. ACS tries to save it as string. Will push this fix asap. Thanks.

    This is a duplicate issue that is internally being tracked as ACS bug.
