Our university is moving to a system on April 17th where they will require that people sending email "authenticate" using a UW NetID and password. Since our university is also our ISP for our journal, this will affect outgoing mail from our OJS server.
Campus C&C suggests the following settings:
UW C&C wrote:SMTP Server name: smtp.washington.edu
Authentication (login): ON, using UW NetID and password
Secure Connection: ON, (e.g., using SSL or STARTTLS)
Port: 587 recommended, 25 permitted, 465 as a last resort
I've tried entering the appropriate values of smtp_server, smtp_username, smtp_password and smtp_port into the appropriate locations in the config.inc.php file, but so far no joy.
I also set smtp = On, and tried both smtp_auth= PLAIN and LOGIN without success. Any test messages I tried sending then never went through.
As soon as I turn smtp=Off, the mail works fine again, but our days are clearly numbered.
My current theory is that our mailserver wants SSL enabled, and it's not clear to me how to do this with OJS. If I change set force_ssl = On or force_login_ssl = On, will that also enable SSL for email?
