Hi,

I am trying to send an email using watcher. But getting the following error:

Request you to suggest what could be the issue.

Thanks.

Hi Vilas,

I looks like your exchange server uses an unknown certificate (maybe self signed or signed by a non-commercial CA?).

In the release we don't enable customizing the the keystore/truststore, though this is definitely on our roadmap.

For now, try adding the following line under the smtp setting in your exchange email account settings:

ssl.trust: <host> 

where <host> is you exchange host (or * to trust any host)

Thanks @uboness.
For some reason issue got resolved on its own after a couple of restarts of elasticsearch.
But your suggestion is good. I will try if I run into that again.
