Hi
I need help configuring the mail for my ingoing/outgoing mails.
I have a working mailbox i have created in a separate domain from my form - this mailbox is working fine and can send and receive mail from everywhere.
Trying to attach this mailbox to my forum, but I am missing something because i am getting this error: (I am using the password that i log into the mailbox).

Maybe my mail box doesn't configure properly?

Could contain: Page, Text, File

 

 

Could contain: Text

You would need to contact your mail provider on thi sissue, as the error you are getting there is coming from them. It may well be that SMTP is not configured, or that you need to use a different prototol. But only they will be able to tell you one way or another.

This is a configuration issue.  I'm almost willing to bet it's an issue with the SMTP Protocol and/or port.  Most mail servers today don't allow "Standard/Plaintext Authentication" for example.  Many other servers also require different ports outside of 25...  for example with Google, the port would be 587.

IPB can only submit a request to your mail server.  It does not control the response from it.

By the way...  I use Amazon's SES to send email via SMTP.  In order to connect to it, you have to use TLS as the protocol and 587 as the port.  But that can vary from provider to provider.  That's why you may need to check with your hosting provider to see what settings they require.  

Sound great. Is it a free service?

If your hosted on AWS platform, you can send 62K emails free per month.  My site is on Invision's CiC now, which is on AWS.  As a result, I can use their free tier for sending email.  (This site averages around 10K emails per month.)
