Fixed: Settitng up SMTP Server using PHP.INI file

Postby TotalBalance » 14. June 2007 00:34

Fixed: With the help of Wiedmann, looked at phpinfo() to find php.ini file in use. Once I made the changes, all worked as designed.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
I've just switched from WAMP5. While I really like XAMPP, one thing that's I can't get to work is setting up SMTP to work with my Google Apps acct.

The way I got it to work with WAMP5 was very easy (see below). However, when I made the same changes to the php.ini file using XAMPP, doesn't seem to work. Any ideas would be really great.

Thx. in advance,

Lars

---------------------------------------
With Google Apps there was no need to supply a user name and password
which I found interesting although I've tested with and without
authentication and it works both way.
So the required and optional lines in the php.ini file under the [mail
function] for my Google apps acct. look like this:

[mail function]
;required
SMTP = ASPMX.L.GOOGLE.COM
smtp_port = 25
sendmail_from = [email address]

;optional
SMTPAuth = true
Username = [email address]
Password= xxxxxxxxxxxxx

Keep in mind the the SMTP MX record I used was the preferred one based
on what http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/lookup.ch ... om&type=MX
returned. Your domain may be using a different Google MX record.

P.S. For some web apps (i.e. mediawiki) you should also make a change to the [Date] section (right above this one). Specify you timezone.

e.g. date.timezone = America/Denver
