email and smtp setting

Postby kbiltagi » Thu Jul 01, 2010 8:40 am

Hi All,
i apologize for my bad English. I have recently installed the last version of OJS to manage a multilingual website. I configured the email to smtp with server data (smtp server, port, username and password) that works in another university website and provided by the server administrator. but it does not work with OJS. I had tested also Gmail but it does not send any mail from OJS. The server uses PHP version 5.2.1. Can you help please to make the outgoing mails work? thanks
