In your ACP -> Maintenance -> Error log are there any email error messages?

Hey again, it seems half your topic got split off with the one post that I reported as a topic hijack...I thought they would just split out that one post into it's own topic but alas all the other replies including yours went with it. :?

So in regards to my request for your ACP - E-mail settings page here is the rest of that topic for continuity..

How do I post a screen shot of my ACP for you to see? Excuse my ignorance, but I don't know how to do that.

Then just type out all the settings.

Is your PC running Windows? If so follow the basic instructions here. Learning how to grab screen caps and upload them will save you a lot of finger cramps in the long run. ;) The same premise applies to other operating systems but the execution is a bit different. :)

Have you changed "Use SMTP server for email" to No since you received the error message you posted above? First off change the package size to 0 and remove the entries in the SMTP fields (username & password) and then post back when you have made those changes. :)

You need to enable under admin -> email settings the email function to be able to use the other options.
