Hello! I'm fighting with email sending via smtp. My email provider needs per user authentification for outgoing emails.

Error log:

File "/opt/openerp/server/openerp/addons/base/ir/ir_mail_server.py", line 463, in send_email
    smtp.sendmail(smtp_from, smtp_to_list, message.as_string())

and server answer:

SMTPSenderRefused: 553
5.7.1 Sender address rejected: not owned by auth user.

Are you obligated to use that SMTP provider? If not, just use Google! It's free and probably about as reliable as you can get.

This video shows you the set up procedure, step by step : SMTP setup so as to invite UID/PWD users

I create small module, which allows to use different smtp settings for users: https://github.com/bamps/smtp-per-user
