Email Connector & Encryption: The string provided is not an encrypted string

We use the Email_Connector module. For this we have set a 32 character string in the Encryption Module constant EncryptionKey and a 16 character string in LegacyEncryptionKey. In the EncryptionPrefix the default value is set to {AES3}. However, when trying to configure the mail address for Encryption (2. Email Protocol; Send Emails), I get the warning: "The string provided is not an encrypted string. Returning the plain string." and for Email_Connector the error: " org.simplejavamail.mailer.internal.MailerException: Was unable to connect to SMTP server". The Office365 mail address is enabled for sending. During configuration, the following error message appears from step 1 to step 2: "Could not configure your email account automatically, Please Configure it manually. Got Error: Property 'http://javax.xml.XMLConstants/property/accessExternalDTD' is not recognized."   We are using Mendix Studio Pro 9.18.0

Hello Rebecca, 

Do you also have SAML module in your application? or has a jar with name xercesImpl-2.12.1-sp1.jar under userLib folder?


Hey Rebecca,

Sometimes it happens, just click okay and configure it manually, after configuring manually you would be able to send emails,

Let me know if you face any issues in doing that

Hope it helps!
