Emails not sending through the blocks
The following error was found while trying to send the test email:
Unable to send mail. mail(): Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set()
What do I need to do to get this working??
If you're going to use Googlemail as an external smtp server you need to use
encryption - SSL
problem is - I can't remember which page you have to go to except it is difficult to find and hardly documented. I'll see if I can remind myself. Hopefully someone else with better knowledge / memory might weigh inand help out....
For C5 use external smtp settings. You may have to dummy an entry in your Windows Host file for something like smtp.mylan.net (fqdn format, C5 will not use "localhost").
An even better fix for the dummy host file is to actually use your real DNS SMTP server, that way C5 will be happier during setup/test step.
You may also want to look at other smtp classes which will permit use of "localhost", the downside is that you will have to hook it into C5 mail logging system (whatever it's called) to get reports.
