Problems with SMTP

Recommended Posts

I installed bbPress on Windows XP Pro SP2 with Apache 2.2.4 and PHP 5.2.3. I installed a few plugins, and everything worked fine. However, when I tried to register a new user for testing, I couldn't receive the e-mail with the password.I checked the error log and found this:

[Sat Aug 18 21:18:09 2007] [error] [client] PHP Warning:  mail() [<a href='function.mail'>function.mail</a>]: Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in D:\\Program Files\\Apache Software Foundation\\Apache2.2\\htdocs\\forums\\bb-includes\\registration-functions.php on line 105, referer:

A small part from php.ini:

[mail function]; For Win32 only.SMTP = localhostsmtp_port = 25; For Win32 only.;sendmail_from = someone@example.com

Most things on Apache and PHP are set to default, so I'm not sure if I skipped any processes. I've been having trouble with SMTP for a long time now. Need to find a solution, thanks.

Does your server machine have the SMTP installed?Edit: I see you also posted in the bbPress forums...

The error message is indicating that it cannot connect to the mail server. According to php.ini, you are telling it to use a mail server running on your computer, so you need to install and set up a mail server. Or, you can upload the script to a server that is already configured with a mail server, most servers online are.
