Excel Table not working in SMTP in 2022.12


I am sending a excel table as an email body using ‘Create HTML Content’. It was working fine till I got the update for studio to 2022.12. I am getting below error:

Send SMTP Mail Message: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

If I remove the table from HTML creator, the mail is going. Please help.

Could you please update the mail activities package and try again

It is updated. I removed the package and again added but the error remains.

Hi @csmart,

I suggest you review your HTML file, might be problem is your HTML code.
- Use a Read Text File activity and point to a html file that the content is only
- Then store it in a variable and use as input in the Send SMTP Mail Message activity and set the property IsBodyHtml to True.


I am storing table from excel into a data table and then adding the data table in the HTML editor as per screen shot. If I just remove the table from the HTML editor, it is working fine.

I am aware of this. but my point is that it was working fine and still works fine on 2022.10. Its only after the recent update of 2022.12, it stopped working. The suggestion given is little lengthy.
