unable to use SMTP server in, but same settings work in 2.0.14

edited February 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
First off, thanks for sharing your software, obviously you guys put a lot of hard work into it, and it shows :)

I've been testing vanilla 2, and noticed that when i upgraded above 2.0.14 ( i'm currently at, i could no longer send mail through an smtp server using the same settings that previously worked. I am testing using the "Request a new password" button, and i am getting the message that authorization has failed.

[FYI, the settings i am using are port 587 and TLS]

To confirm, i reinstalled a 2.0.14 version using an old copy of the database and config file and it works, no problem.

I *am* able to send without using a server, but would prefer not to do this a some users never receive messages.

Do you have any tips for me to try and resolve this issue other than rolling back to 2.0.14? IIRC, 2.0.17 was a security update, so i'd rather not roll back.

Thanks for your time :)
