Message Hi, 
I have just downloaded a trial copy of Automize with a view to buying it. I am trying to getting the bulk email function working but I'm having some problems. I am using a text file of email addresses and I have input the email server address, given a port number, sender email address, sender name and I have set it to SMTP. In the activity log, I am getting an ' Exit Code = 1 ' message. Do you have any suggestions? 
Reply1 Hi Allan, 
Thanks for the Automize data files. 
1) There does not seem to be a smtp server on 1967. javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host:, port: 1967; nested exception is: Connection refused: connect 
2) The smtp port is normally '25'. In your Settings menu / Email server profile / for the email profile 'server', set the port = 25. Also, you should not use 'smtp' authentication. First try 'None' for the authentication. 
3) After making these changes to your , test the 'send email' task first. If that works, try the Bulk Email
