I'm sorry, but I have a problematic e-mail on my network. The network have an e-mail-blocker, so you can only use the service providers own e-mail server.


I can send e-mail using my e-mail program, and that is Thunderbird. The Thunderbird settings are:
Server: smtp.glocalnet.net
Port: 25
[X] use name and password:

( ) No
(X) TLS, if possible
( ) TLS
( ) SSL

In addition to this, the "server" seems to arbitrarily reject e-mails; so you have to "no response from server" "resend e-mail" to make it work. The same when I read new mail: the server say "no new mails in inbox" and then I update again: "found 45 new e-mails".

Most or you Readers see what the service provider Admin is up to here!

(1) I fail to find any extremely detailed info on how to set up the forum e-mail; especially on the "No, TLS if possible; TLS; SSL" selection.
(2) If the Server is intentionally set up to reject e-mails, unless you are stubborn and resend them, we may (I, especially) need a server queue with outgoing e-mails, that can be sent later.
(3) Several "home" internet service provider's in Sweden have set up using fire-walled or blocked e-mail. This possibly save you all from some bulk e-mails!

Try to configure SMTP from your forum's Global Settings Manager and point it to your provider's mail server.

Yes. TLS, but not SSL ...
An improvement (for a future version) would be some kind of panel, where you can test sending an e-mail. The ordinary e-mail can produce a number of error messages, such as incorrect password, password required, no response from server. I have no idea, if the email actually go to the server provider's computer, is rejected, or if I have a local firewall problem.

If we get an error while sending mail we log it to the forum's Error Log Viewer. Once the mail is handed off to the system, there is unfortunately no way to tell if it will be delivered or not.

Hi! Sorry; I just got a mail trough the forum into the e-mail of the admin account. Well, I would suggest a "test mail to admin" button with a screen printed error output.
Very Happy
