Your email address may not be configured properly or is not allowing any outgoing mail. Please check with your host to see if your email has permission to receive/send emails.

Your mail server does not support username/password authentication, but PHPBB thinks it needs to send it. In the admin control panel, make sure the username and password fields of the SMTP configuration are EMPTY (not even spaces in them), and submit the changes.

If you are using MS SQL as your SQL server, you must make sure you are using at least version 2.0.20, to work around some "interesting" ideas Microsoft has about "null" data fields.

ok, I removed the usernamn and password and came up with a new error

Couldn't get mail server response codes
Line : 165
File : smtp.php

I DO have the configuraton USE SMTP SERVER: YES

If I choose NO, the mail goes out but noone gets it
