send mail via script

Good Day,

I try send mail via script, but I get error.

def SendEmail(Message):
            useSSL = 'True'
            schema = ""
            mConfig = Sys.OleObject["CDO.Configuration"]
            mConfig.Fields.Item[schema + "sendusing"] = 2
            mConfig.Fields.Item[schema + "smtpserver"] =
            mConfig.Fields.Item[schema + "smtpserverport"] = 587
            mConfig.Fields.Item[schema + "sendusername"] = MyEmailAddress
            mConfig.Fields.Item[schema + "sendpassword"] = MyEmailPassword
            mConfig.Fields.Item[schema + "smtpauthenticate"] = 1
            mConfig.Fields.Item[schema + "STARTTLS"] = True
            mConfig.Fields.Item[schema + "smtpconnectiontimeout"] = 30;

            mMessage = Sys.OleObject["CDO.Message"]
            mMessage.Configuration = mConfig
            mMessage.From = MyEmailAddress
            mMessage.To = MyEmailAddress
            mMessage.Subject = 'TestComplete Result'
            mMessage.HTMLBody = Message


      except Exception as exp:
            Log.Error('E-mail cannot be sent', str(exp))
            return False
      Log.Message('Message was successfully sent')
      return True
def test ():

Hi @paarmann-ara,


I agree with the previous replies that this error is related to the email settings. Please check all of them one more time, especially because you use the Microsoft Exchange email address. You can start with this:

@TanyaYatskovskaThank you but not working. I use a Test Tools. please see a Photo.

Update, Now I get this Error:

Error: SMTP protocol error. 530 5.7.0 Must issue a STARTTLS command first.
Failed to send messageConnecting to mail server.

Maybe sombody have Idee



Something that sounds quite similair was asked and replied here locally. The problem was with the .Net SMTP client code for gmail, but maybe the same case exists for Microsoft as well.



I have an issue when trying to send an email from a customer’s email account from G Suite.

I receive an exceptions with the following message returned:
System.Net.Mail.SmtpException: The SMTP server requires a secure connection or the client was not authenticated. The server response was: 5.7.0 Authentication Required. Learn more at

Yes, the message end abruptly for some reason.

Found solution:

The issue was resolved.

The reason of access deny was that app-specific passwords work only when two-factor authentication is enabled, and for this account two-factor authentication was disabled today some time ago. So, my app password was not valid anymore.

@AlexKarasHi and thanks for your Reply.


in my case, that appear because the Hosting department blockiert the port 25. Now the port is open.


I can send mail with other program but just with TC, I get this error. 😞

Good day,

After days and days, I have find a solution for this problem.

The CDO do not support TLS therefor this problem apear in my Case. I use another codes from this Link


maybe that is better to attache that codes in TC's help. 🙂
