The e-commerce.

SMTP settings location in OSCommerce

Recommended Posts

Linux or Windows?  In Linux, it uses some variant of sendmail.  Windows uses SMTP, but in both cases, what I would call SMTP settings would be defined outside of osCommerce.  E.g. in the sendmail configuration or the web server on Windows.  There might be something in the PHP configuration.  I haven't tried to look recently. 

What configuration osCommerce has is in admin > Configuration > E-Mail Options

You may want to check out Harald's email testing script as a troubleshooting measure.  If neither email sends, then the problem is at the host level. 

Always back up before making changes.

Thanks for the reply Matt,

Believe the web host runs under Windows and the site is using SMTP.

I can send mail through the web site to my self using a personal email address fine but get no emails through the site from orders or inquires.

I've downloaded the script and will look into it but doubt I'd know how to use it.

iirc, the settings for sending emails using SMTP are in the server's php.ini file. There is an old add-on that moves the settings to osC's configuration database. These settings are then editable through Admin. It does require some core code edits (in the email class, iirc).
