Correo Settings SMTP

Hello everyone,

I know there is some topics about this, but I haven't been able to fix my problem with them, so I hope someone can guide me.

I have this configuration in config.inc, with the email of my web.

; Email Settings ;


; Use SMTP for sending mail instead of mail()
; smtp = On

; SMTP server settings
; smtp_server = mail.xxx.com
; smtp_port = 25

; Enable SMTP authentication
; Supported mechanisms: PLAIN, LOGIN, CRAM-MD5, and DIGEST-MD5
; smtp_auth = PLAIN
; smtp_username = admin@xxx.org
; smtp_password = xxx

If I send an email with the webpage of my server, it's work perfectly, but when I try to send it through OJS it doesn't, nothing happens, no error and no email. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong or I forgot anything. If anyone can help me I'll really apreciate it.

Sorry for my english.

Hi erreal,

Note that any line starting with a ";" is considered to be a comment and is not read by OJS. If you want those settings to take effect, you'll need to remove the ";" from the front of the relevant lines.

Thank you very much,

I feel so stupid, I was going crazy for that obvious and little thing.

Sorry, and thanks again.
