the email configuration (including different connection options) is saved in config.php, so after installation you can edit that file to change the config.

Code: Select all
/* SMTP Settings. You don't need to worry about this unless MAIL_MAILER is
 * set to 3. If your server requires authentication, set MAIL_SMTP_AUTH to
 * true and configure MAIL_SMTP_USER and MAIL_SMTP_PASS.
define('MAIL_SMTP_HOST', "smtp.mailhost");
define('MAIL_SMTP_PORT', "587");
define('MAIL_SMTP_AUTH', "true");
define('MAIL_SMTP_USER', "");
define('MAIL_SMTP_PASS', "topsecret");
//Options: '', 'ssl' or 'tls'
define('MAIL_SMTP_SECURE', 'tls');

Outbound emails are sent using phpmailer. This php library can be tested outside of opencats, but please check you have exchange configured to permit smtp from your instance.

The simplest way to check is to send an email manually using telnet; ... erver-2019

This way, you can determine if exchange is working as expected, befoe moving on to reconfigure opencats.
