Email notifications not working

I have a paid email service I have so it's not a Gmail account. I've attempted to set this up via the Email notification plugin. It fails when sending a test message and for an actual event. My settings, mail servers, etc are perfectly fine because they work with Thunderbird on my desktop and my email app on my iPhone. So it's just Emby that won't work in regards to the email notification plugin.

Any suggestions on what I may be missing?

I do see the following in my logs:

2021-10-17 13:04:40.679 Error App: Error sending email: System.Net.Mail.SmtpException: Syntax error, command unrecognized. The server response was:
   at System.Net.Mail.SmtpConnection.ConnectAndHandshakeAsyncResult.End(IAsyncResult result)
   at System.Net.Mail.SmtpTransport.EndGetConnection(IAsyncResult result)
   at System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient.ConnectCallback(IAsyncResult result)

Not sure how there could be a syntax error considering, I am just filling out the plugin information.

HI, the issue is the plugin is using an outdated technique to send the emails, and as a result it does not support some modern protocols used by newer email servers. It still supports most email servers, but will need to be reworked to send using a different mechanism.

Hello!

Are there any recommendations? What email service will work with that outdated plugin?

Will the plugin be updated at some point?

Is there any other method to get notifications from the emby server?

Thank you.

Number of them listed in Plugin Catalogue. In addition to Notifiarr, which rulez them all.

Thank you @GrimReaper

I was hoping that there is any email service that still works with the email-notification plugin.

If I understand correctly notifiarr is a web service triggered by webhooks and needs registration as well as an app on the phone? Am I correct?

Yep, and it sends notifications over Discord, no proprietary app.
