Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Email with SMTP on IIS6

Postby henrylo » Mon Feb 14, 2005 5:36 am

My platform is:

Windows 2003 IIS6.0
PHP 5.0.0 Win32 (zip)
Apache 2.0.52
OJS 1.18
SMTP in php.ini: localhost

when I want to send an email in the journal via the IIS6 SMTP, it told me
Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 501 5.5.4 Invalid Address in D:\www\ojsweb\admin\editor\users.php on line 334

When I try to change the SMTP in php.ini to our uni's main email server (using Sun One Messaging Server), it works. BUT, the admin said this is not allowed because I have no logs on outgoing email!

When I try to use a email server called "hermes" which is a free win32 email server, it works. BUT, the admin told me they do not think the email server is secure.

Oh my god.....

Who can kindly bring me out of this hell.....I know this is not the way I should work, but I do really try very hard to understand what is going on, but it simply won't work.......

Please advise.... :cry:
