Email only working with --test


I’ve rebuilt my setup from scratch and am having a hard time with mailing.

I used:
vertical email --tls mail.myhost.domain 587 Username Password Sender Recipient

To configure my mail settings. If I add --test to it, I immediately receive the test email.

However, when I run a backup with --email I get this:

WARNING EMAIL_SEND Failed to send the notification email: SMTPAuthenticationError(535, ‘5.7.8 Error: authentication failed:’)

The content of the file email under .verticalbackup seems correct.

What do I do here?

So I solved it by deleting the “email” file and redoing the email config through vertical. Either I have been completely incompetent or vertical had issues overwriting it previously. Not discounting the incompetence :wink:
