Fan in training

Recently I installed ocPortal 9. I seems very promissing, however I'm still struggling with configuration a bit. The biggest issue I'm now facing is the fact that no emails seem to be sent. I tried both with and without selecting 'Use this software's SMTP server connection code', but it doesn't seem to work. The admin errorlog does not show any errors, so I have no clue about what's wrong.

I'm running on a windows server.

Any idea's?

The server admin really should configure PHP properly to connect through to what the SMTP server is. However, if that's not possible for some reason, the Bettermail addon allows support for more kinds of SMTP server (e.g. ones that require encryption).

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
