I have installed a fresh phpBB forum on behalf of a friend on a myhosting.com account. Everything is fine apart from the board emailer function, which is not working at all, not even to send out confirmation emails.
I have tried using localhost and SMTP and it's no go with either. With myhosting.com accounts, you use their nameservers and their SMTP servers. I've checked and rechecked the passwords and settings.
When using localhost, the error is "E-mail error
When using SMTP, the error is "E-mail error
Could not connect to smtp host : 111 : Connection refused
