Sendmail vs SMTP


Recommended Posts


Whatever I did , could not get to send emails from the admin side with smtp.

I can send with sendmail , I have downloaded the smtp auth config but without success, make the many suggestions from the forum to no avail. The strange things are:

  1. both native php mailer and the oscommerce mail class work ( with sendmail as setting but not with smtp) as evidenced by the email test contrib
  2. the smtp server works (mail.solarissa.com) . I also tried smtp.gmail.com as I have the google apps
  3. there was no error, emails seem to be sent ( successful message ) but never received
  4. I should mention that when send with sendmail the messages are received in the spam folder

the configuration I am using is :

E-mail transport method : smtp

E-mail line feeds : CRLF

Use MIME HTML : false

Verify through DNS : false

Send E-mail : true

SMTP server host add : mail.solarissa.com ( also used smtp.gmail.com)

SMTP server helo : solarissa.com

SMTP Authentification required : true

SMTP Athentification username : [email protected]

SMTP Authentification pasword: XXXXX


Any idea on why the smtp refuse to work on my setting? In advance thank you.
