Add TLS Support for SMTP

Postby bardoskar » Wed Aug 03, 2011 4:18 am


I have tryed to add TLS Support for my SMTP configuration but i have not. I tryed a lot of things for that but there is no success. Also there are not any documentations for SMTP TLS Support. How can i add this code. For example i added code in


Code: Select all
function authenticate_tls() {
      if (!$this->send('STARTTLS'))
         return false;
      if (!$this->receive('220'))
         return false;
      stream_socket_enable_crypto($this->socket, true, STREAM_CRYPTO_METHOD_TLS_CLIENT);
      if (!$this->send('EHLO', $this->server))
         return false;

and added a case

Code: Select all
   case 'TLS':
      return $this->authenticate_tls();

i opened congfig.inc.php and add

Code: Select all
; Enable SMTP authentication
; Supported mechanisms: PLAIN, LOGIN, CRAM-MD5, and DIGEST-MD5
smtp_auth = TLS
smtp_username = my_username
smtp_password = my_password

I could not authenticate. Have u any idea about this problem ?
