I just started a store, I have have the same question. Instead of using the localhost mail function, i would like to email everything (newsletters, invoices, simple mail) through a remote SMTP server.

 

Any methods how to achieve this?

unless you control the php.ini file, going to be pretty tough, will take a bit of programming rewriting things for email.

do the mail servers you are wanting to use require smtp authentication?

Yes, Mibble. I would like to either give the database of email addresses to the smtp server and then process the newsletter, or do it through the admin tool in the shopping cart and authenticate to an external smtp server.

 

Otherwise, I guess I'll just have to pull of the addresses from my database and process them a different way.

for a newsletter, i would do it external from osCommerce, thus you can control easier, who is subscribed and who is not. if someone chooses to unsubscribe, all they have to do is click on a link via their email, same with subscribing.
