sending mail from OJS

Postby agonzalezc » Tue May 10, 2011 7:16 am

Good day to all, I have a problem for sending mail
from a magazine published in OJS, I have understood that I must change something in
the file "" where the magazine is installed, I have already
identified the file, and inside this I already saw where you have to be
change the configuration to make shipments from OJS, but my
drawback is that you be placed there, I do not know how to modify this
file down I place the configuration file that is inside,
for you to help me and I can solve the problem.

the file that I believe should be changed is:

; Email Settings;


; Use SMTP for sending mail INSTEAD of mail ()
; Smtp = On

; SMTP server settings
; Smtp_server =
; Smtp_port = 25

; Enable SMTP authentication
; Supported Mechanisms: PLAIN, LOGIN, CRAM-MD5, and DIGEST-MD5
; Smtp_auth = PLAIN
; Smtp_username =
; Smtp_password =

; Allow envelope sender To Be Specified
, (May Not Be Some possible with server Configurations)
; Allow_envelope_sender = Off

; Default envelope sender to use if none is elsewhere Specified

; Default_envelope_sender =

; Enable attachments in the various "Send Email" pages.
; (Not Disabling here will disable features on That attachments
; Require Them, e.g. attachment-based reviews)
enable_attachments = On

; Amount of time required entre Attempts to send emails non-editorial
, In seconds. This Can Be Used To Help Prevent email relaying via OJS.
time_between_emails = 3600

, Maximum number of recipients That Can Be included in a single email
, (Either as To:, Cc:, or Bcc: addresses) for a non-Privilege user
max_recipients = 10

; If enabled, email addresses Must Be Validated Before login is possible.
require_validation = Off

, Maximum number of days before an unvalidated account expires and is deleted
validation_timeout = 14

thank you very much all what I can and want to collaborate
