SMTP Authentication

We would like to configure SMTP with outgoing authentication and SSL encryption.

Version: phpMyFAQ 2.9.7 on Hostgator with Linux host and PHP 7.1 installed

Example settings for Microsoft 365:

smtp_server =
smtp_port = 587
smtp_connection_mode = TLS
smtp_authentication = yes
auth_username = <email>
auth_password = ...

Another option is to use the regular SMTP settings for stanadard hosts:

Outgoing Server:
SMTP Port: 465
Authentication is required SMTP

The phpMyFAQ only has limited fields in the admin area of the user interface. Is there a file we can update to use the above settings?

Reason for this request: Without authentication the emails from phpMyFAQ always end up in the SPAM folder.

Thank you

right, we don't support SMTP authentication via TLS currently, we can add this for 2.10. Please add a feature request here if you need this feature:
