I'm trying to send Drupal 8 emails using Swift Mailer (5.4.8, 8.x-1.0-beta1) and a remote SMTP server. The transport should be encrypted, so TLS should be used. This is my setting:

enter image description here

Unfortunatly when trying to send an email I'm getting a warning:

Warning: no valid certs found cafile stream: `/etc/apache2/ssl/certs/' in Swift_Transport_StreamBuffer->startTLS() [...]

And this error afterwards:

Unable to connect with TLS encryption

Without the encryption I'm able to send mails using the remote STMP server.

A test of the connection using TLS from the server where Drupal is installed looks fine (I guess):

openssl s_client -connect mail.example.com:25 -starttls smtp

The response (excerpt):

No client certificate CA names sent
SSL handshake has read 4369 bytes and written 586 bytes

So where do I get further details about the connection error? And what could be the cause of the problem?

    I'm not an expert on email, but are you sure 25 is the correct port? On most mail hosts I've used, the encrypted port is 465, and 25 is unencrypted. – Patrick Kenny Oct 6 '17 at 8:08
  • You probably need to configure location of the cacert.pem via curl.cainfo = "C:\www\cacert.pem" and openssl.cafile = "C:\www\cacert.pem" in your php.ini if you are on localhost. Also even with this I had issues with ssl for abotu a year since something got broken in git for win(im on windows) so i always have to disable ssl validation. But if this is happening on server, something else is probably wrong. – user21641 Oct 6 '17 at 9:50
  • Also you can download the file here curl.haxx.se/docs/caextract.html – user21641 Oct 6 '17 at 9:51
  • @PatrickKenny: I'm pretty sure that the port should be 25. I get an timeout error, when using port 465. – Philipp Michael Oct 9 '17 at 14:05
  • @IvanJaros According to the watchdog log the valid cert should be in /etc/apache2/ssl/certs/. But although the pem-file has been downloaded to this directory and restarted apache, I still get the same warning and error. – Philipp Michael Oct 9 '17 at 14:08
