I'm experiencing some difficulty with the "Email Settings" configuration. I understand plain SMTP configuration uses port 25 without any authentication whatsoever. Problem is, the server I'm trying to use (which I don't have access to), apparently doesn't support TLS authentication via port 465. So, I have to use port 25, which works OK, but I do want to associate an existing email account to centralize all OJS mail from there. Until now I've only been able to succesfully use port 25 without authentication data.
Configurations that worked previously:
smtp = On
smtp_sever = [My_server_IP]
smtp_port = 25
smtp_auth = [BLANK]
smtp_username = [BLANK]
smtp_password = [BLANK]
smtp = On
smtp_server = tls://smtp.googlemail.com
smtp_port = 465
smtp_auth = LOGIN
smtp_username = [GMAIL account]
smtp_password = [password]
I've noticed the mail server supports SMTP authentication, but via NTLM protocol; it obviously runs a Windows architecture. Is there a way to use port 25 while associating an email account? Thanks for any help given.
