Python script for emailing not working

Hello, I have written a python 3 script that send an email using a SMTP from my company. The script is working fine in my laptop running on python 3 so there shouldn't be any error on it.

The problem is that it's not working on matillion's Python component. I used the python 3 as interpreter and the same code. What could be the reasons for not be working on Matillion?

Sorry, I forgot to paste the python code:

import smtplib
from email.message import EmailMessage
s = smtplib.SMTP(host='SMTP Address', port=25)
s.login('USER', 'PASSWORD')
msg = EmailMessage()
me = 'SAME_USER'
you = ''
msg.set_content('Some of the tables failed to be loaded')
msg['Subject'] = 'OData loading failed'
msg['From'] = me
msg['To'] = you

Hi Alejandro

What’s the error message you get? This runs without an issue for me.

Hi Laura

The error that I get when I run the component is:

Script killed; timeout exceeded.

Same script runned from jupyter notebook takes 5 seconds and works. What could be the reason?

Thanks for your help

Hi Alejandro,

Its possible that the necessary ports are not open and the connection is timing out.
Please check the security group associated with the matillion ec2-instance has the necessary ports open.
