Php Mailer - Smtp Mailer

Recommended Posts

I am working on the installation of a specialized shopping cart for our photo business. I’m asked this question in set-up and I don’t have a clue what to do:

 

This will set how mail is sent from the server (New order noticiations, email client informaiton, etc...). Typically the PHP mail() function is used. If that is not available (disabled by host) and PHP Mailer script is available, then you can use the SMTP Mailer. If that is not an option, then contact support .......

 

 

 

I know Coppermine sends out e-mail fine, but I don’t remember how I set it up.

 

What options are available to me?

 

Thanks

You can use either and if PHP mail() is the default I would just go with it.

 

 

OK, but I have fields to fill in. Sorry to be so dumb, here is what they are:

 

(SMTP PHPMailer) PHP Mailer URL

 

(SMTP PHPMailer) SMTP Host

 

(SMTP PHPMailer) SMTP Username

 

(SMTP PHPMailer) SMTP Password

 

 

Thanks.

If you are using PHP mail() you can just leave those fields blank. Those are for using SMTP

Thank you. I can't get it to work with the fields blank, no mail coming in my test. I'll check with the support desk.

 

Thanks for the help.

(SMTP PHPMailer) SMTP Host - your domain name

 

(SMTP PHPMailer) SMTP Username - a vaild email address on your domain

 

(SMTP PHPMailer) SMTP Password - password for the above account.

 

I do not know what the value of the first one would be, sorry.

Thanks, Bruce. I'm checking with the script help boards. I'll let you know how this comes out.

I found the mail in my "spam" box at Yahoo. So, the mail function is working, and Yahoo is working overtime.
