Powerstore and email authentication
I am having a major issue with the user registrations email verifications.
What I would like to know, is how do you do it with your hosting company? If most email servers require smtp authentication, then how do you setup PS2 to send email without authentication?
We have our own windows 2003 webserver, and the email server is also installed on it. We've tried all these methods:
1. From the webserver, using smtp, no authentication...it goes to the users_Profile.php page fine, but no email comes through.
2. We setup a separate email server that does not require authentication, and changed the settings in PS2 to go to it. The Submit takes me to the users_Profiles.php page, but no email.
3. Using PEAR (and what a pain it is to figure out how to install not only the PEAR engine, but then the MAIL part) with authentication...we get open_basedir errors, even though it is not enabled.
Here's the interesting part...from the webserver, using Outlook Express with the smtp settings configured to use the settings from new email server, we successfully sent emails to accounts on the webserver, and out of it (MSN). But not from PS2.
Tech support has been trying to help me through a support ticket, and we've gone back and forth with information for about a week now, and since they haven't called me like I've asked, it is taking forever to get this fixed.

Is anyone running PS2 on a Windows Server? If so, how did you set your open_basedir?
