Hi and thanks for a great product, just stopped 8 BOT's o far today Very Happy

But I have a problem using my SMPT email account to send mails.
I have use this for about 6 months now (Use SMTP Server for email) and never had a problem. After installing VTC I got this error when my board try to send ouf notofications:

Ran into problems sending Mail. Response: 535 5.7.0 authentication failed


Line : 132
File : smtp.php

I can resolve this problem my using the internal mail server for sending mails Use SMTP Server for email set to no, but I still want to use my SMPT account cause it's more stable than the internal.

PS! The error msg is there 0,01 seconds after you press submit when writing a message or trying to send mass mails. Meaning that it doesn't even try to use the SMPT accunt

After installing VTC

You mean after installing Textual Confirmation?

Textual Confirmation uses the standard phpBB functionality to send e-mails. Therefore, if TC mail fails, then most likely any mail from phpBB fails. Please check.

If phpBB mail works, but TC mail doesn't, pleae try following and report results. In file "functions_tc.php", find
$from = "$from <" . $board_config['board_email'] . '>';

and change it to
$from = $board_config['board_email'];
