Email: Confirmation, Contact Us, Newsletters - All NOT WORKING

As you use Windows you need to set to SMTP, also you need to set up a domain email account, admin@ etc...

add this to your admin, then you can set up a reditect to send mail to your Gmail account (some servers do this others do not)

if you do not use a domain email address as the send mails from then they will not get sent the majority of the time.

I want to use gmail as my email id. I also want to use the inbuilt send email/newsletter function in the Adminstration tools.

 

Also, On the contact us page, I would like to receive mails to my gmail id.

 

Could anyone guide me how to configure this?

That will only help ONCE the emails are sending out!

Nice topic though

It can happen that the host doesn't permit mails to be send via the contact us using the customers mail as the senders address.

 

In this case you need to define a $from_email and to set it to STORE_OWNERS_EMAIL_ADDRESS

 

It's described there, but this affect just the contact us.

 

Other mails are getting send from the owners mail anyway.

Do you have a Store owner mail address same as your hosting account? (eg [email protected] ---> yourdomain is the one where osc is hosted?)

its as easy as this

A) Create a new email account on the domain server, add a redirect to this email, redirecting it to the gmail address you want to use

B) Add the DOMAIN address to your oscommerce store configuration

 

THIS will get your email working, do not make code changes until you are sure it DOES work

i have got a contact email in the store owners information (domain email) and also a hotmail email address in the email copy on the admin side of things but when a customer fills in the contact us, nothing. When i send out an email to a customer via the admin panel, nothing. So no email being send whatever.. This is quite serious since customers cannot contact me...

Same problem here. No Emails being sent. Server is windows and changed to SMTP. Got an email account with my host Godaddy so I am email@domain. Clueless.
