Do you mean Outlook or Outlook Express
[quote]and this could possibly mean that you are not using Transport Layer Security (TLS - encrypted email) with Outlook - if your SMTP/POP server has Transport Layer Security email then IMHO you should use it as the equivalents in snail-mail are sending your letter into an envelope -TLS, or using a post card - plain email.[
It probably does mean that, since All I did was follow Yayoo's instructions for setting up an account in Outlook. It has pretty much the same settings as my regular email account with my isp, except for the server names. Except for your explanation above, I've never even heard of TLS, let alone know what it is.
Just for a check, I changed my sendmail.ini to look like this:
- Code: Select all
# A freemail service example
and I didn't get any log entries, but also, I didn't receive the email. If that TLS thing encrypts the email, then I really need to use it, because the forms will be sending private information (i.e. SSN DOB etc). Howver, I don't know what to do to make this work. FWIW, when I upload the pages to my Yahoo site, the email works, but now I'm wondering if it's encrypting, or just sending it plain. I'll have to find that out from Yahoo. In the mean time I need to get it working locally.
I'm going to finish reading your last post and follow any/all instructions there, but have to sign off for now, as we have to leave to go to Atlanta on business. I'll get back to you this evening. Thanks again.
