Can you walk us through an example of things going wrong? Which
variables have you customized? Does smtpmail-smtp-server have the
expected value when things don't work?
This issue seems to be related to the conditional deciding whether to
open a normal or a TLS connection in #'smtpmail-open-stream.
(let ((cred (smtpmail-find-credentials
smtpmail-starttls-credentials host port)))
(if (null (and cred (condition-case ()
;; XEmacs change
(call-process (if starttls-use-gnutls
This is difficult to debug since after using #'edebug-defun things
While things are still *not* working, I can see in the trace-output
that #'smtpmail-find-credentials returns a list (i.e non-nil). Not
sure if cred is actually assigned, though. Tracing the condition-case
doesn't produce any output, as if it wasn't even called. This sort of
tells me that cred was nil.
