SMTP password keeps reverting

Enter password > click submit > click back to previous page, password field shows shorter password.

The browser is not auto entering the password.

why are you using smtp for email?

normally you just choose no for smtp and the builtin php mail will work. if not, then you have to use smtp and you need to make sure you have all the correct info in blanks to use it. your host provides that info.

It won't save the password -- it keeps reverting.

It could also be a cache issue. Are you using CloudFlare?

Are there any mail errors in the phpBB and server error logs? If there are please post them here in code tags.

There are no ‘threads’ in phpBB, they are topics.

Solved

My fault. :oops: I was missing the ssl:// in SMTP server address.

The password reversion was only in my imagination.
