I'm having trouble authenticating to my smtp server at my hosting company. I can set auth to true or fales and it doesn't connect.
my host uses SSL and I don't think GL will do that. What can be done? I've searched the forums but everyone seems to be missing this config, according to my GL guru, I'm setup correctly (AGAIN I can set 'auth' to true or false and it doesn't work, also tried both smtp ports that my host lists)
I'm stumped. Can GL run mail safely? I'm scared of spammers and such.
$_CONF['mail_settings'] = array (
'backend' => 'smtp', // can be one of 'mail', 'sendmail', 'smtp'
// sendmail parameters (only needed for 'backend' => 'sendmail'
'sendmail_path' => '/usr/bin/sendmail',
'sendmail_args' => '',
// SMTP parameters (only needed for 'backend' => 'smtp'
'host' => 'smtp.1and1.com',
'port' => '25',
'auth' => 'true',
'username' => 'my_email_username',
'password' => 'my_email_pass'
