Node.js Question

node js SMTP error

I am sending e mail through my godaddy email account. For that i am using node js for sending emails but it is giving following error :

{ [Error: getaddrinfo ENOTFOUND] code: 'ENOTFOUND', errno: 'ENOTFOUND', syscall: 'getaddrinfo' }


Source code:

var transporter = nodemailer.createTransport({
host: 'ssl://smtpout.secureserver.net',
port: 465,
auth: {
user: 'Email address',
pass: 'password'
}
});

var mailOption = {
from: from,
to: to ,
subject: subject,
text: body
};

transporter.sendMail(mailOption,function(error, response){

if(error){
console.log(error);
}
else{
var successRes = { "status": "success" }
res.send(successRes,200);
}
});

Answer

The error is being shown because the host cannot be resolved i.e. because you are appending ssl:// to the host

As per the readme on the github link for nodemailer-smtp-transport your createTransport should be something like this for a secure connection

var transporter = nodemailer.createTransport({ 
    host: 'smtpout.secureserver.net', 
    port: 465, 
    auth: { user: 'Email address', pass: 'password' },
    secure: true
});

Give the above a shot, I think it should work just fine, if it is not working check your firewall/proxy setting.
