    Hello,

    I am trying to create a test in which the test results are submitted via email. When I publish, I get an error message that says “one or more forms, tests or submit actions have their information submitted via Email which is not supported using the JavaScript Title Manager, either change the type of submittal, or de-select the JavaScript title manager option.”

    So I deselected the JavaScript title manager option and published. However, it seems without the JavaScript title manager, the course won’t load and when you try to open the course you get a lot of warning and error messages.

    What can I do to email the test results?

    Thank you!

    In the Lectora User Guide it’s recommended that you have port 25 wide open with absolutely no restrictions and that you must have a server mail client on that same server that the course is hosted with the relay option enabled that is able to capture the email from port 25.  Is this true?

    Hi,

    Was this resolved? I am experiencing the exact same issue/same error when I try to publish with a survey.

    Thanks,

    Alexis

    No. It’s been a while, but if I remember correctly, it might have been a firewall issue with our corporate computers….

    It could be a firewall issue.  Can you submit your course to our Support team?  I think there technical expertise is going to be needed to troubleshoot.

    Has there been a resolution to this?  I’m receiving the same error.  Was it the firewall?

    The email feature is no longer supported in Lectora 17.

    Hello,

    I have a test with open-ended student responses, and I’d like to receive copies of their responses via email or some other form of transcript from the SCORM 1.2 Lectora course.  If the email feature is no longer supported in Lectora V17, what is another way to have the course do this?  Perhaps JavaScript?

    Thank you for your feedback!

    Brad

    Node.js? (https://www.w3schools.com/nodejs/nodejs_email.asp)

    I’m pretty sure you’d have to have your mail server configured to allow unencrypted  (no-SASL) connections, which is horribly insecure and results in sending passwords across the internet in clear, or just having un-password-protected email sending.

    There’s probably a better alternative, I haven’t needed to do this nor have I done extensive research.

    “Custom Results Submission” to a PHP script should work.

    Is there a script for the PHP? Please forgive my question, I’m new to Lectora.

    Thanks

    Therese there is no forgiveness needed. I too am fairly new, but very new to pushing Lectora beyond it’s internal capabilities to incorporate HTML and Java coding.  PHP I’m not familiar with.  I hope someone is able to post a script as you suggested but will do some research myself.

    Will Trivantis be supporting the email function for Lectora V17 again in the future?

    I don’t speak for (or work for) Trivantis, but as a sometime Systems Administrator, it’s not a trivial thing to have scripted email support in 2019. There are lots of antispam measures out there that autoblock mail from unauthenticated servers, and detect script-generated email and block it.

    As mentioned upthread, you might be able to do it either in the browser with node.js, or on a server you control with a PHP script.
