phpBB SMTP settings

apps

#1

I’m not receiving any email notices whatsoever.
Trying something I checked “Use SMTP server for e-mail”.
Server: mail.domain.tld (using this format)
Port: 25
Authentication: PLAIN
Username: forum@domain.tld (A working email account.)

Unfortunately it still does not send me any emails. Enable board wide emails is enabled. Users send email via board is disabled.
Email function name is mail.
Packet size 50.
Contact and Return are just forwarding accounts.


#2

It’s been a long time since I’ve even looked at PHPBB, but does it give you the option of entering that account’s SMTP password?

Failing that, you might consider configuring it to send via the server’s local mailer.

Because everyone has an opinion.

Hmm, I did use those settings but still no emails…


#5

Do you have “Enable board-wide emails” set to false?

Hehe, no. But that certainly would have done it.

Might be time to ask ask Support to run through your logs - they may pick something up.
