"Data transfer failed" with no other detail?!
Problem reported by Cristina Precup - 3/15/2018 at 11:44 PM
A client has a website hosted on Plesk Onyx on our server and in web.config he has setup a connection to the Smartermail server to send orders from his website to their email address and the client's email. He complains that sometimes he receives orders randomly. For example, he receives an order at 9 AM, then the next order from 10 AM is nowhere to be found and then he receives the following order from 11 AM. So one order is missing. I checked the logs and they are pretty vague, I haven't found anything directly related to this on the forum, only articles related to another error that contains the "data transfer failed" string (something with "connection timeout", which we don't have in our error), so I'm not sure what the problem is on our server:

Can you please help? We don't know what could the explanation for this behaviour be or what to check further. I added the IP of the Plesk server to the Smartermail whitelist, just to be sure.
Thank you

Check that Path MTU discovery is working between the servers.
