Hey Everyone,

I'm having a very frustrating problem...

My website,, has userforms used in a couple different places. Right now, I cannot get them to e-mail me when there has been a submission. My e-mail,, goes through spamsoap, then into my companys exchange server. I've checked the logs for spamsoap and there has been no attempt to e-mail me. Likewise, I looked at the logs for the firewall and my websites IP has not e-mailed me.

So i tried to set up an outbound SMTP server that the server would route the e-mails through, but then i get "SMTP Error: Could not connect to SMTP host." when I use

Someone please help!!

Try just using the SilverStripe email API to see if you can send an email (i.e write a custom function to send a message through then it would be a Userforms issue. Make sure you've defined a from address.

Postmark is a good tool for sending emails without worrying about smtp etc.

Thanks for your reply Willr

Embarrassingly, I don't have the coding skills to write such a thing. Building VPNS over 1024 bit encryption, yes; websites... no :(

Would you please write it?
