    Hi Naveed,

    Have a look here: https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/Reference/Config/webconfig/#smtp-settings

    You may need to add the section yourself.

    I have set an smtp using "MailJet"

    I am now getting this error

        System.FormatException: The specified string is not in the form required for an e-mail address.
       at System.Net.Mail.MailAddressParser.ReadCfwsAndThrowIfIncomplete(String data, Int32 index)
       at System.Net.Mail.MailAddressParser.ParseDomain(String data, Int32& index)
       at System.Net.Mail.MailAddressParser.ParseAddress(String data, Boolean expectMultipleAddresses, Int32& index)
       at System.Net.Mail.MailAddressParser.ParseAddress(String data)
       at System.Net.Mail.MailAddress..ctor(String address, String displayName, Encoding displayNameEncoding)
       at System.Net.Mail.MailMessage..ctor()
       at Umbraco.Forms.Core.Providers.WorkflowTypes.SendRazorEmail.Execute(Record record, RecordEventArgs e)
    

    an ideas?? could it be due to me not having a network host ip address?? I presumed this should be the smtp servers IP address but on MailJet set up they do not provide any ip address only a host

    This is my web.config mail set up:

      <system.net>
       <mailSettings>
            <smtp from="in-v3.mailjet.com">
                <network host="127.0.0.1(standard umbraco one??)" port="587" userName="have taken out" password="have taken out" />
            </smtp>
        </mailSettings>
      </system.net>
    

    I think i am missing a setting here in my web config.. any ideas please

    Hi Naveed,

    The from attribute should be an email address. The host attribute should hold the SMTP server's hostname (or IP). Looks like you've accidentally put the servername in the from attribute?

    ah yes facepalm stupid me

    I am not getting the error no more now..but can see no email is being sent.

    This is proving more difficult then I thought

    is there any thing else I may need to set up I have it like this now:

         <system.net>
       <mailSettings>
            <smtp from= "***@outlook.com">
                <network host="in-v3.mailjet.com" port="587" userName="***" password="***" />
            </smtp>
        </mailSettings>
      </system.net>

    Hi again - we've all been there (facepalming our way through :-)

    Actually, there could be one last setting - in the umbracoSettings.config file there's a setting for notifications (which is also used by UmbracoForms if no sender mail is configured):

    https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/Reference/Config/umbracoSettings/#notifications

    Otherwise, I'd start double-checking the hostname + port values. But you've probably already triple-checked those, so... :)
