Magic Mirror crashes on email module

  • Hi,

    I have an issue with my MagicMirror. I am new at this but I could not find a solution in the forum. Normally I would do a fresh install but the Magic Mirror is used by my 82 year old father and visiting him during the Coronacrisis is not advised. So I hope you can help me solve this form a distance.

    Platform: Rasperry Pi 3
    Node Version: v10.15.2
    Magic Mirror version: v2.11.0
    After the upgrade of Magic Mirror via the script everything looked fine but since a couple of days the mm-error.log and mm-out.log get stashed with error messages. Eventually the system crashes as the filesystems get overloaded.

    The mm-out.log gives:

    [2020-04-22 12:25:55.646] [LOG]    Whoops! There was an uncaught exception...
    [2020-04-22 12:25:55.655] [LOG]    MagicMirror will not quit, but it might be a good idea to check why this happened. Maybe no internet connection?

      source: 'socket'

    The mm-error.log gives:

    After I deactivated the email module the errors did not occur anymore. This is the section I used within the config.js

                            module: "email",
                            position: "top_left",
                            header: "Email",
                            config: {
                                    accounts: [
                                                    user: "g**********",
                                                    password: "**********",
                                                    host: "",
                                                    port: 993,
                                                    tls: true,

                                                    numberOfEmails: 5,
                                    fade: false,

  • @FritsdeGroot are u trying to run in https mode?

    [2020-04-22 12:25:59.348] [ERROR] Error: self signed certificate

    Email notifier error:

    can u send me the upgrade log?

  • @FritsdeGroot if you used this module

    the upgrade script should have refreshed its dependencies (the upgrade log will show that)
