Hi makos,

The warning message you're receiving indicates that your SMTP server is configured as mail.uah.es, and you're connecting on port 25, which is the standard SMTP port. The warning indicates that the server couldn't be reached at that configuration, which means you're using the wrong server, or there is a network problem between your machine and the server, or that your server requires connections on a different port (i.e. if it requres messages to be delivered over SSL). Are you able to deliver mail to that server using an email program i.e. Thunderbird? If your ISP has instructions for configuring a mail program, it might be helpful to look through those.

Hi Alec,

I use that server and that port to deliver mail through thundirbird without problems.
Afternoon I'll try to contact to my ISP about the mail configuration but I can't understand why is so "difficult" to make it works :cry:

Hasn't the System any other place besides config.inc.php file where to set up the SMTP configuration??

Thanks,

Marcos

Hi Marcos,

In that case, it's possible that there is a firewall problem or something similar. Double-check your firewall settings to make sure that PHP has been allowed to contact the mail server.
