I have an asp.net core 2.1 app that times out when I try to send an email. The application is hosted on Azure. I am using port 465 becuase using port 578 gave me a "TLS currently unavailable" error and I've read that this error usually occurs becuase of SSL.
- Currently using: mail.(my domain).co.za and port 465 - Resulting in a timeout.
- Previously tried: smtp.afrihot.co.za and port 587 - Resulting in a "TLS currently unavailable" error.
- Previously tried: smtp.afrihot.co.za and port 465 - Resulting in a "No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 220.127.116.11:465" error.
Am I missing something? Maybe I'm using the wrong combination?
Any help will be appreciated,
