How to configure Joomla 1.7 SMTP email with a google apps email address
Integrate Sendinblue with your website and favorite apps. ... WooCommerce plugin - Create an order confirmation email to send through WooCommerce ...
I have a fresh Joomla 1.7 install.
I have a valid, confirmed, working google apps email that I can log into via the web client. I have pop and imap enabled.
Configuration within Joomla Global Configuration Tab in the Mail Settings section is as follows:
Mailer: SMTP From Email: [-me-]@decherney.com From Name: Test Site Email Sendmail Path: /usr/sbin/sendmail SMTP Authentication: Yes SMTP Security: SSL SMTP Port: 465 SMTP Username: [-me-]@dechereny.com SMTP Password: [-password-] SMTP Host: smtp.gmail.com
Anytime the site tries to send email whether for registration, mail, or other notification services it reports the following:
SMTP Error! Could not connect to SMTP host.
I have tried using port 587, using phpmail with the smtp host as ssl:smtp.gmail.com:465, and pretty much every other solution proposed on the net.
If anyone has a suggestion/answer I would be much appreciative.
turns out all I had to do was add the following line to the php.ini file
(or uncomment it)
