Hi Guys,

I tried to use email notification in jenkins. But it shows me the below error.

Hi@akhtar,

I also faced the same issue and I solved this by the following configuration change to /etc/sysconfig/jenkins.

JENKINS_JAVA_OPTIONS="-Djava.awt.headless=true -Dmail.smtp.starttls.enable=true -Dmail.smtp.ssl.protocols=TLSv1.2"

After that restart your jenkins service.

Hope this will solve your error.
