[3.0.8] help SMTP mail; GMAIL through GoDaddy hosting

Post by Khoala » Fri Jul 01, 2011 7:37 pm

I'm not able to make it work, I got this error:

Code: Select all

E-mail error
» EMAIL/SMTP
/forum/adm/index.php

Could not connect to smtp host : 111 : Connection refused

<b>[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice</b>: in file <b>/includes/functions_messenger.php</b> on line <b>979</b>: <b>fsockopen() [<a href='function.fsockopen'>function.fsockopen</a>]: unable to connect to ssl://smtp.gmail.com:465 (Connection refused)</b><br />
Same as many people here. Tried also with tls://.. port 587 and so on.

My hosting service is on godaddy. But I have all my e-mails (4 four different purposes) working with gmail (googleapps). I tried with godaddy email and it worked right away. But I want to use gmail server for the reasons explained before.

I called godaddy service and they couldn't tell me if fsocketopen() function was on/off or working. They only thing they told me was that I have to make a script about that function to put into my phpbb email script...
I don't really think so. But I don't really know.. anybody know if that's true? Or any way around this?

At first my e-mail was working with phpbb mail function, but for some reason it was taking up to hours to receive it, and sometimes it would never arrive.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

It's a Godaddy thingy, great registrar, poor host.

Good luck.

Unlocked as it doesn't seem to be a warez site anymore.

Thank you.

Well, as Pit$Bull said it seems to be a godaddy issue. They don't want you to use anything else but their e-mail system. I really wanted gmail to manage my domain emails but I had no choice. At least I could made three free e-mail accounts and configured them on outlook. The only downside is that I lost all my e-mails.

Anyone knows if its possible to recover and transfer them to my new e-mails?
