Hi, I would like to test Mailspring for my company. I can’t create an imap account for my mail server, because my smtp check fails.
External forwarding is closed on my server, mail forwarding is possible only within the domain. Mailspring, apparently, when verifying an account, tries to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and naturally receives acces denied from the server. On this I get a softlock and I cannot skip this stage.
I just installed mailspring and wanted to setup an imap account.
but during setup it failed by trying to send a mail to email@example.com … WTF? Why is it trying to send a testmail to an invalid mailaddress which obviousy will fail!

Any solutions to this or am i just oing something completly wrong?
It seems that when we try to validate your SMTP credentials, a standard part of that is trying to issue a rcpt command and making sure you aren’t blocked. This seems strange to me though… not sure what a good fix would be. Oddly it doesn’t seem like there are any complaints on the mailcore2 repo…
