help with smtp

I have geeklog up and running on a win2k server using IIS, php 4.2.3, mysql 3.23.52, etc. Everything seems to work just fine, except the email functions. I've seen similar problems posted here, but Ive yet to find a definitive answer to how to fix the problem. When a new user creates an account, they never recieve the email with thier password. Again, everything else works great...i'm very happy with it, I just need to get this email function working in order to move forward. I've seen a few other posts with similar problems, and a few of you actually stated that you "figured it out" or "fixed it", but never posted what you did to accomplish that. Please respond if you can help! Thanks!

First - make sure php.ini is using win32 mail server Second - open users.php and look for emailpassword function and modify all headers to to have \r\n here are the lines that have to be changed (already modified) in ver 1.3.6 $mailtext = "{$LANG04[15]}\r\n"; $mailtext .= "{$LANG04[2]}: $username\r\n"; $mailtext .= "{$LANG04[4]}: $passwd\r\n"; $mailtext .= "{$LANG04[14]}\r\n"; $mailtext .= "{$_CONF["site_name"]}\r\n"; $mailtext .= "{$_CONF['site_url']}\r\n"; Third - You have to modify mail.php and do the same to all headers in there That is it! Now all email functions should work

Did you change/add any other lines then what I mentioned above? You shouldn't have. What is your line 307? Also, you have to make sure your SMTP server is setup to relay from your geeklog site.
