SMTP sucks on concrete5
Sorry for making new topic , but i tried everything and yet Smtp is not working in Concrete 5.7 . Its a hurdle that i am not able to solve and i need it . On top of it 5.7 is not saving any log as well :O
Any one similar trouble and solved .. gmail or third email provider as relay , please do share .
For google I put in:
- my google email address
- my google password
- turned SSL on
- put in 465 as the port (leaving it blank didn't work)
However, that didn't work immedaitely, a test would throw some sort of error about needing to log in via the web interface. I had to go to:https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps... and enable the less secures options there.
With our business SMTP server, I also had to put in the 465 as the port, as well as use the proper secure address to the server (one with a valid SSL cert), but that's nothing special.
So if you are having problems my advice would be to check ports, and check they aren't being blocked on a server level.
It might else help that you paste in what error messages you are getting in return when you use the email test option in the dashboard.
Thank you for reply.
So far my settings are exactly same as you said . And 5.7 is not logging anything that i can post.
I have tried google, yahoo, live as well as 1&1 none worked so far .
When mine wasn't working because of putting in the wrong settings, I had red error messages that gave me clues to why. See attached for an example.
BTW. You need to take the proper domain-smtp-server! Eg. yourdomain.com would NOT work with smtp.otherdomain.com
If you provide your version of Concrete5 I can check and see if you might be affected by one of those bugs. You could upgrade your site to the latest stable version as well and see if that fixes it.
Edit: The bug I was referring to looks like it might have been fixed in 18.104.22.168 (https://github.com/concrete5/concrete5-5.7.0/issues/1380)
I am using Version - 22.214.171.124 , should be latest stable version . Will try later again . Yes basically i am using dashboard Send Message test for smtp .
I'm having the exact same problem.
