Error while using SMTP in aws lambda function

Hi,

I am trying to create a skill that sends email to the user using the smtp library in python. The program works when i run it locally but its throwing error when i use it in a lambda function. below is the code:

    msg = email.mime.Multipart.MIMEMultipart()
    msg['Subject'] = 'test'
    msg['From'] = 'abc@xyz.com'
    msg['To'] = 'abc@xyz.com'
    smtpserver = smtplib.SMTP("smtp.office365.com",587)
    smtpserver.starttls()
    smtpserver.login("abc@xyz.com", "123")
    smtpserver.sendmail("sender",'receiver', msg.as_string())
    smtpserver.close()

It was a time out error. I changed the interval settings in lambda configuration.Now it works. Thank you

server = smtplib.SMTP('smtp.office365.com', 587) server.ehlo() server.starttls() server.ehlo() server.login("abcxyz@example.com", "hahah") text = msg.as_string() server.sendmail(fromaddr, rcpt, text)

use this code while sending email by using Python

Thank You
