Firstly, thank-you very much for your reply
I guess I don't understand exactly how everything works. I thought that since I am running a home based server I should also be sending and receiving emails from the same home based server?
I did go under global config and am not sure what to put into the fields. I changed it to SMTP.
I am not sure what to put into the mail from
... is that my name or my personal email address?
... just my name?
Send mail path? I thought this to point somewhere to a directory on my server... the current path is Linux based?
SMTP Auth... I am guessing no?
SMTP User... is this my personal email address again?
SMTP Password... my password to my personal email address? (My ISP? not server)
SMTP Host... not sure what to put here either...
I am sorry I am not very confident in what I should be putting here. I am guessing that I should not have changed anything else manually... as in the PHP.ini and such, or tried to configure Mercury Mail (is this required BTW?)
Thanks again for your help, and hopefully you can guide me to success!
Just a thought or opinion... with all the things I have been trying (editing PHP.ini and mercury) should I start over from scratch? (again lol)
