Test Sending Email From Command Line

Email can be tested using PowerShell to isolate issues from software trying to sent email.

  1. Open a PowerShell command prompt.

Test access to the port

Test-NetConnection -ComputerName email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com -Port 587

Good results look like:

ComputerName : email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com
RemoteAddress :
RemotePort : 587
InterfaceAlias : Ethernet 2
SourceAddress :
TcpTestSucceeded : True

Send a Test Email

Send-MailMessage -To <YOUR_EMAIL> -From donotreply@foray.com -UseSsl -SmtpServer email-smtp.us-west-2.amazonaws.com -Port 587 -Subject Test -Credential (New-Object pscredential('<USERNAME>', (ConvertTo-SecureString '<PASSWORD>' -AsPlainText -Force)))

Good results have no output but you receive an email.
