JusticeIsDead wrote: it leaves one to stop and wonder if it would be waste of time to go post his/her problem about anything that comes in this package, obviously its just as a pain in the ass to the developers, cus they cant even read a long post to help a potential user, so it would make sence to just include an easy mail system with the package or leave sumthing in the release notes that gives them an alternative to what comes with it.

JusticeIsDead wrote:isn't functionality enuff to serve the purpose, or must you have to have it be open source to put into the package? im not the smartest guy on the net by far, but i do know that there is a way to include a free mail server that isnt open source and have it still work with the package correctly, hell i would even go for just including another install file that i have to install that comes with the package.
JusticeIsDead wrote:please dont get me wrong here, the package is exellent, the best. the support has left a bad taste in my mouth and i doubt i'll be coming back to get any of that unless somehow i am forced to do so, but every other thing about the package is priceless to me and everyother user, EXCEPT for that huge mail program,
JusticeIsDead wrote: and dont get me wrong with that either, i am sure the mail program is worthy enuff to be in this package. all i am saying is that [and this is an assumption but id put my money on it ] very few ppl will be using this package for a mass production, as a matter of fact i believe ur TOS stipulates that you suggest NOT to use it for production . . . . . .

I use phpbb as my forum.
It works Great!!!!
I use it to communicate with my friends....
Only thing is, It won't send registration conformation mails and all.
i adjusted this at the configuration of phpbb...
Use SMTP Server for email = yes
SMTP server address = postmaster@localhost
no user and or pass.
if i alter it into above settings, i no longer have the problem:
Ran into problems sending Mail. Response: 553 We do not relay non-local mail, sorry. DEBUG MODE
only thing i see now is a huge white screen...
What am i doing wrong??
T-Shot wrote:Thanx for your reply...
I already tried that, but if i only use localhost.
It keeps giving me the error message.
if i use postmaster@localhost
it gives me a blank page...
Is it something in mercury mail i need to adjust or in some php files??
