Re: SMTP Connect() Failed - Test Email

Thank you Dveos for your reply and help. I have followed your instructions but am still not able to send emails. Do you think this might have something to do with the fact that I am asking the system to use SSL while Outlook states that its standard SMTP encryption method is STARTTLS? Regards Christ...

Re: SMTP Connect() Failed - Test Email

Dear Russ Thank you very much for this. That is very useful to know. As I am not an IT expert, I think I should remain as close as possible to the standard version of Opencats and only use new features as they are integrated into enhanced base product.

Re: SMTP Connect() Failed - Test Email

Thank you Russ for your help with this. As my tweaking of php.ini and sendmail.ini is not resulting in being able to send quality emails from within the system, I will follow your advice and use Outlook independently from Opencats. I assume that the email templates do not have a use currently but ar...

I have now tried editing: the XAMPP "php.ini" file sendmail_path and also the XAMPP "sendmail.ini (to include the Outlook port 587 and leaving smtp_ssl=auto) Unfortunately, this still does not enable emails to be sent automatically when an Activity Entry is made within OpenCATS Any ideas very welcome.

Re: SMTP Connect() Failed - Test Email

As an addendum to my question above: I find that I can manually send emails from the Candidate and Contact areas of Opencats which successfully arrive at the recipient's inbox as having come from Mail for Windows10. Can I therefore assume that these are going via Opencats and that Outlook is not blo...
