    Description

      Cannot send test emails from Configure->System->E-mail Notification

      My exim server is rejecting with:

      rejected MAIL <nobody@nowhere>: Access denied - Invalid HELO name (See RFC2821 4.1.3)

       

      A quick search suggests this issue seems to be fixed in java mail library somewhere between 1.4 and 1.4.7 (source: https://dzone.com/articles/smtpsendfailedexception)
