And it still gives same error.
That error message is implying that you haven't actually set "Use SMTP server for email:"
in the ACP Email Settings page, in order to actually use the other SMTP configuration fields you have listed. So long as "Use SMTP server for email:"
is still set to "No"
, phpBB is still trying to invoke the PHP mail() function.
Also, try port 25 with the username and password like you did for 587, just to be sure. "PLAIN" for the authentication type is likely supported; although if its not, the error message should help confirm that.
Which brings us to the important point: Now that you have "Use SMTP server for email:"
set to "Yes"
, re-test all three scenarios. (587 with login, 25 with login, 25 without login.) Ideally one of them now works, and you don't have to go any further.
But in the worst case if all three still don't work, go to the ACP Maintenance tab and in the Error Log section cut-n-paste the three failure messages that correspond to these three attempts. It will be something different than simply "mail() has been disabled for security reasons."
