SMTP

Post by MichaelF » Sat Oct 17, 2009 11:48 am

I use hostmonster as my hosting company are they changed their configuration a short while ago so that mail can only be sent via SMTP.

I've just installed the latest phpMyFAQ (2.5.2) and can't register a user because the emails aren't going out. How can I set-up the email to send via SMTP login to port 26?

Hi,

sadly, a SMTP implementation is currently missing, we're only using the builtin mail() function of PHP. But we can provide SMTP support in one of the next versions.

I spoke to Hostmonster, and they've told me that php mail function hasn't been disabled (they're just encouraging people to send via smtp).

People who attempt to register don't get registration emails. Can anyone think why this might be the case?

Hi,

do you have PHP's safe mode enabled?

I have safe mode *off* and am having the same problem: no emails going out to new registrants.
Plus, I do not receive any emails to admin account....no notifications of anything at all.

Yes, I entered the same email address I use for this forum.
I tried two different email addresses.

I cannot even get the Send to a Friend feature to work.
I used correct emails, but nothing is sent or received.
