Mysterious server crash (due to SMTP connection timeout)


I’ve just gotten this for the first time:

W20170420-20:45:56.746(-5)? (STDERR) events.js:141
W20170420-20:45:56.747(-5)? (STDERR)       throw er; // Unhandled 'error' event

=> Meteor server restarted

Unfortunately the stack trace doesn’t tell me where this originated from so it’s pretty tough to pin down. I was hoping someone here might have a clue how I can trace this.

Email not working. Tested MailGun & MailChimp. Start server and it sends an email. But then all other emails will not send
Email.send randomly never returning

I had this error with email 1.2.0 after updating to but it was solved by updating email to 1.2.1, I believe it was issue but there were a couple related to a similar error


Any solution on this isseu? In my end I got this error below when sending an email and the email is not delivered.

Note that I’m using Meteor 1.5 and email version is 1.2.3.

Any thoughts why I’m getting this issue?
