Email Setup

I would like to setup the ability to send emails using SecurityAssist; however, I am having trouble setting up the email protocols. My company uses Yahoo Small Business as its Internet Provider and Web Host. Yahoo requires a port of 465 with SSL encryption for is SMTP server. When I enter this information into SecurityAssist, I get back a warning that the port is not working and unable to communicate with the server.

Furthermore, I have attempted to try both the Mail in Windows and Mail in Linex options to see if they would do anything to help. Both returned the same warning with the same mail protocols entered it.

Your assistance would be appreciated. Thank you.

Does the mail server require authentication? If so you need to use PEAR Mail for this. Only when you use PEAR mail will you will be able to pass login credentials. You would need to ensure that you have this installed in your PHP server before you can configure it in Universal Email.

I installed PEAR. I watched a tutorial from your website providing directions to using Universal Email to send form information from my contact page using DW edit utilities in Universal Email. I followed the directions, including putting in the correct path to PEAR. When testing on my testing server, it appears to be working; I am redirected to page I indicated in UE. The problem I am experiencing is the HTML email I designed is not being sent. I am sending you the file used for your review.

On line 9 of your contact page it looks like you are setting the recipient to false like this:

php:
$RecipientEmail = false;



This should be a string for the email that you would like this to send to, like this:

php:
$RecipientEmail = "youremail@domain.com";



When you have it set like this it should then send to the address specified.
