email without authentication

Does vertical support emailing without SMTP authentication?

I've tried setting username/password to empty, but it still attempts to authenticate.

Failed to send the notification email: SMTPAuthenticationError(334, 'VXNlcm5hbWU6')

Can you try this 1.03 build:

This version does not attempt to authenticate if either the username or the password is empty.

Thanks. I'm running into another issue.

Even though i'm specifying port 25, it's still using 587:

./vertical email --test mymailserver.local 25 '' '' 'no_reply@foobar.local' 'dward@foobar.local'

[pid 326050] connect(5, {sa_family=AF_INET, sin_port=htons(587), sin_addr=inet_addr("REDACTED")}, 16

This is a bug -- somehow 587 was hardcoded as the port number when connecting to the SMTP server.

If you download the executable again from, it should fix this issue.

Awesome, it's working now!
