Mail wasn't sending with the usual php Mail() on our host (dreamhost). Not a huge surprise since this is a problem for our Wordpress install as well. So, I switched the SMTP on and I am successfully receiving emails from gmail, but this results (as the wiki says it would) in all emails coming from my gmail account. I noticed on the wiki that a patch is available for OJS 2.4 and 2.3. Would one of these work for OCS 2.5.3 to help make the email come from the actual sender? And if so, how do I go about installing a patch? Sorry, that's probably a really basic question. Is it just a matter of replacing existing files with those that have changed?
Others on Dreamhost forum claim to have success with PHP Mailer package. Is that an alternative I could use with OCS? If so, where would I add the include, or basically, how would I set that up?
