Different email hosts other than localhost

Postby ripnix » Sat Jul 16, 2005 4:22 am

Hi there!
I'm running OJS under FreeBSD, and I happen to have several jails on my homeserver. Therefore there are, among other, 2 jails: mail and web. My question is where can I set a different host for sending emails?

Thank you.

Currently OJS only supports sending mail through PHP's mail() facility. On non-Windows systems this uses the local sendmail binary, so you would need to configure your local MTA to relay mail to another SMTP server.

The next release of OJS will support sending mail directly through a specified SMTP server.

Thank you a lot for the info.
