Please help for config host to send mail

Postby chieudv » Fri Aug 31, 2012 2:11 am

Hi all,
I've just to install an OCS for preparing my conference , it works.
But I have a problem with email sending.
My problem is that the users do not receive any email from the system when create account or by conference manager sent.
I tried to config in config.in.php with smtp as:
; Use SMTP for sending mail instead of mail()
smtp = On

; SMTP server settings
smtp_server = smtp.gmail.com
smtp_port = 465

; Enable SMTP authentication
; Supported mechanisms: PLAIN, LOGIN, CRAM-MD5, and DIGEST-MD5
smtp_auth = PLAIN
smtp_username = chieudv@gmail.com;
smtp_password = myPass

Please help me how to solve this problem
Thanks.

Hi chieudv,

Gmail's SMTP server is not intended for this kind of use. Your ISP (for the server on which OCS is running) should provide an SMTP server you can use.
