      Description

      Hi,

      Office 365 servers are notorious for their slow responses. Recently I get a lot of these:

      ERROR: Could not connect to SMTP host: podxxxxx.outlook.com, port: 587
      javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host: podxxxxx.outlook.com, port: 587;
      nested exception is:

      So now I'd like to increase the SMTP timeout value but apparently that's not possible as of now.

      Another ugly problem is that Office 365 uses STARTTLS without SMTPS so to make mailer work I gotta hack on /etc/default/jenkins and add -Dmail.smtp.starttls.enable=true to JAVA_ARGS otherwise it won't work. (Hmm, come to think of it, timeout might also be set this way, too...)

      So all I ask for is to expose the mail.smtp.connectiontimeout, mail.smtp.timeout and mail.smtp.starttls.enable properties under settings instead of always using the Java defaults.

      Thanks in advance!

      Viktor

          Actually, it is not a bug.
          BTW, it is a valid request for advanced options.

          I've also the same issue when a try to use Office 365 but i'm not really sure it will be solved by increasing the time out.
