How do I setup Email Settings?

Post by feruchio » Fri Sep 08, 2017 7:36 am

Hello everyone, at the moment I did it like that but it does not seem to work at all, so please tell me what am I doing wrong?

I thought that I have to make email account in the hosting Cpanel , but that did not help at all...

Thanks! ;)

P.S. Btw it does not work even when SMTP is disabled.

On your Mail Settings page, it says you are using port 25, which does not match the settings on your Cpanel page.

I just want to caution you when setting up your emails in phpBB, it's fairly simplistic. If you are configuring it to run off a new mail server, you have to take a lot more into account. I made the mistake of thinking it was really simple when it wasn't.

Make sure you have all you authentication and configuration protocols in place. When I first set everything up any one who went to my forum their registration emails was landing in spam, because I didn't know anything about email.

Here are a few thinks to look up and make sure you have in place

SPF
DKIM
DMARC

Here's a few places to test your mail out to make sure it works properly..

1) Email Tester
2) mail Teter
3) Port25

Learn from my mistakes :)
