According to the Knowledge Base:
“I’d like to recommend that all phpbb sites running on Dreamhost be configured to use an SMTP account for mass mailing, via the configuration page. Otherwise, if you have over 40 members on your site, Dreamhost’s “spam blocker” will bounce your messages…”
I tried this and it doesn’t seem to work. I get the following error:
Ran into problems sending Mail. Response: 550 : User unknown
User unknown?? I don’t get it. I set up the SMTP server with the same user and password that works with my outlook express email program just fine.
Is there a way around this??
Thanks for any help out there.
