3. click on view details button , ensure that the outbound server name is correct.


3.1 if it is not correct, click on EDIT button, enter the valid smtp server address.


3.2 if SMTP Server address is correct, do telnet <smtp server> <smtp port> from Oracle Applications server where concurrent is running. 


telnet mail.gmail.com 25


if it not reachable, connect with exchange team and network team for either resolution or for alternate smtp address.
