I just got off a chat with my hosting service (StartLogic). They confirmed that the previous person I talked to was wrong and that I should be using either port 25 or 587. However, I made that switch and now I am getting worse results. The email is either not going through, or if it does, it is taking a VERY long time (15-20 mins) to arrive in my inbox. I created a new file and started from scratch and am getting the same results...no email or taking forever (both results). However, the music_alert.php file (which I uploaded earlier) works like a charm every time (even after changing to port 25). There must be something I am doing wrong. or UE is buggy or something. Please HELP! I really need to get this solved. This is the last piece keeping me from launching the site.
THANKS for any help!
