      Description

      An incorrect error message is being returned from the email class when a message fails to send due to a blocked port and SSL is specified. Specificaly, the port number in the error message is incorrect; it will show the stmp port that is set on the object (normally 25), when it should be showing the port that was set in the session when the session was created [465 when SSL is used].

      This issue is only visible to the user if the email fails to send because the SSL port is blocked.

      The following code reproduces the issue:
      public void testErrorMessage(){
      HtmlEmail email = new HtmlEmail();
      try

      { email.addTo("abc@d.com"); email.setSubject("Testing Apache Error message "); email.setFrom("abc@d.com"); email.setMsg("Sending through gmail"); email.setSSL(true); email.setHostName("anyhost.com"); email.send(); }

      catch (EmailException e)

      { e.printStackTrace(); }

      }

      If port 465 is blocked, then you wil ge the following stacktrace:

      org.apache.commons.mail.EmailException: Sending the email to the following server failed : anyhost.com:25
      at org.apache.commons.mail.Email.sendMimeMessage(Email.java:1138)
      at org.apache.commons.mail.Email.send(Email.java:1163)
      at EmailTester.testErrorMessage(EmailTester.java:27)
      at EmailTester.main(EmailTester.java:14)
      Caused by: javax.mail.MessagingException: Could not connect to SMTP host: anyhost.com, port: 465;
      nested exception is:
      java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect
      at com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPTransport.openServer(SMTPTransport.java:1391)
      at com.sun.mail.smtp.SMTPTransport.protocolConnect(SMTPTransport.java:412)
      at javax.mail.Service.connect(Service.java:288)
      ...

      Note that the port is listed correctly in the inner exception, but it is incorrect in the topmost exception.

      I have fixed this issue in my sandbox, and will attach the patch to this issue.

          This patch addresses this issue by modifying the getSmtpPort, getSslSmtpPort, and getHostName methods. These methods currently look in the Email object's instance variables to get the port, ssl port, and hostname values. If the values are not set in the instance variables, then it looks for them in the session.

          I have modified these methods to do the lookup in the reverse order: first they look in the session, then they look in the instance variables. So these methods should now return the exact values that were used when the email tried to send.

          This patch was taken against the latest code, and all unit tests pass.
