Description Rainer Bielefeld Retired 2011-08-31 08:23:49 UTC
Observed with Master "LibO-dev 3.5.0 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) English UI [(Build ID: a6adae1-4eb4f62-09af278)]". Steps to reproduce:

1. Open new WRITER document
2. Menu 'Tools -> Options -> Writer -> Mail Merge E-Mail'
3. Insert your settings as usual incl. Server Authentication
4. Click <Test settings>
   Expected: Success
   Actual: Message, please see below.

May be I already had that win 3.4. but problem was not visible because of "Bug 36763 - Mail Merge E-Mail stops with error "Invalid Address""? I am pretty sure that my settings are correct, I always copy/paste them from the same source.

LibO-dev could not connect to the outgoing mail server. Check your system's settings and the settings in LibO-dev. Check the server name, the port and the secure connections settings

the good news is that the new "report the correct error" stuff is working anyway, i.e. the error is described correctly as a syntax error on line 52

fix with
