    SMTP authentication? Link to this post

    ss 2.4.0

    I've been looking through the forums for any information on setting up SMTP authentication for shared hosting environments. Other than a few posts that talk about hacking the core, I'm coming up empty on this.

    Is there a way to set SMTP authentication without resorting to core hacks? i.e., _config.php

    On that note...if there isn't, may I suggest that as a future feature?

    Re: SMTP authentication? Link to this post

    sorry to bump my own post...

    SS: 2.4.0
    Userforms: 0.3.0

    If anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it. Mail is being delivered to the servers default junk mailbox instead of the recipient email address specified in the userforms page. Presumably because the host requires SMTP authentication

    from localhost.localdomain [127.0.0.1]

    ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
    <info@xxxxxxxxxx.com>
    (reason: 553 sorry, your mail was administratively denied. (#5.7.1))

    Am I correct that SS just uses the PHP mail() function to send mail? That still uses the sendmail function though, right?

    Also want to point out that this doesn't work in 2.4+.

    EDIT: Emails sent to outside (not local) addresses work fine.Not sure about this whole post now. Grrr...

    Just to confirm that the module http://silverstripe.org/smtpmailer-module/ works with 2.4.5 for sending email via SMTP (using a Google apps gmail)
