Perhaps letting us know more about your server environment would help -try changing to sendmail if you are on a linuxserver. SMTP is usually a Microsoft thing.

Why do you need to use smtp ? Try using sendmail instead.

OK - can you get to your raw server logs, you're gonna need to see if there are any errors that come through - I would but money on this being the auth contribution, I am using the sendmail on almost an identical server - no problems - right now ;)

 

ok use this email sender: (make a file called mailtest.php and test that)

 

<?php

 $to = "<enter a valid email address from your domain or like a hotmail account>";
 $subject = "My Test HTML";
 $message =<<<EOM
 <html>
 <body><h1>My HTML Message</h1>
<p>This is text</p>
 </body>
 </html>
EOM;

 $headers = "From: <change this to a valid email account on your domain> " . "\r\n" .
		 "Content-Type: text/html;". "\r\n";

 if(mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers)){
echo "Mail sent successfully!";
 }
 else {
echo "Mail could not be sent, please check your settings.";
 }

?>

 

This should send mail through the send mail system - and completely out of OSC's scripts. see if this works, I would send this straight to you regular email account outside of your domain.
