Email with SMTP on IIS6

Postby henrylo » Mon Feb 14, 2005 5:36 am

My platform is:

Windows 2003 IIS6.0
PHP 5.0.0 Win32 (zip)
Apache 2.0.52
OJS 1.18
SMTP in php.ini: localhost

when I want to send an email in the journal via the IIS6 SMTP, it told me
Warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 501 5.5.4 Invalid Address in D:\www\ojsweb\admin\editor\users.php on line 334

When I try to change the SMTP in php.ini to our uni's main email server (using Sun One Messaging Server), it works. BUT, the admin said this is not allowed because I have no logs on outgoing email!

When I try to use a email server called "hermes" which is a free win32 email server, it works. BUT, the admin told me they do not think the email server is secure.

Oh my god.....

Who can kindly bring me out of this hell.....I know this is not the way I should work, but I do really try very hard to understand what is going on, but it simply won't work.......

Please advise.... :cry:
