HI all this is my first post by the way so i would like to say hi first, my name is dom, i am learning PHP & MySQL.
So heres the story so far
I got Head First PHP & MySQL, so i downloaded XAMPP and now i am trying to get the SMTP server working with my ISP.
So first i tried the default port (25) with smtp.virginmedia.com mail sent from="firstname.lastname@example.org"
then i forwarded that port, then port 465 then the IMAP and POP3 ports and i keep getting the same authentication error,
Then i noticed i need TLS/SSL, and user name and password,
So how do i find theses settings,
Also i noticed that Thunderbird uses my gmail account at smtp.googlemail.com port 25, email@example.com, SSL/TLS authentication on.
Could i use those settings (i have tried but come up with errors i mean once i get the SMTP working)
I know thats a bit confusing but PLEASE HELP! I been here since last friday
