What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Hi all,
I've just to install an OCS for preparing my conference , it works.
But I have a problem with email sending.
My problem is that the users do not receive any email from the system when create account or by conference manager sent.
I tried to config in config.in.php with smtp as:
; Use SMTP for sending mail instead of mail()
smtp = On

; SMTP server settings
smtp_server = smtp.gmail.com
smtp_port = 465

; Enable SMTP authentication
; Supported mechanisms: PLAIN, LOGIN, CRAM-MD5, and DIGEST-MD5
smtp_auth = PLAIN
smtp_username = chieudv@gmail.com;
smtp_password = myPass

Please help me how to solve this problem
Thanks.

Hi chieudv,

Gmail's SMTP server is not intended for this kind of use. Your ISP (for the server on which OCS is running) should provide an SMTP server you can use.
