Please help!

Post by azra » Sun Feb 10, 2008 8:10 pm

All of a sudden I got this problem where whenever anyone registers or writes a reply with Quick Reply in my forum, they get this message, but their account is still created or their post is posted:
Ran into problems sending Mail. Response: 535 Incorrect authentication data

DEBUG MODE

Line : 132
File : smtp.php
Why did this happen? I havent installed any mods or anything. ?? :?: :o :shock:
azra :D

If you have not done anything then your host has.
Contact them and ask for the correct connection info for the smtp mailserver.

Often just

Servername = "localhost"
username = leave blank
password = leave blank

will work but if not be sure to ask your host.

The truth is out there.
Unfortunately they will not let you anywhere near it!
