Help with SMTP email - godaddy shared hosting on Linux?

Postby mroach003 » Thu Feb 08, 2007 4:15 am

I have looked through all of the forum postings, found several that are related to this topic but I cant find anything that seems to work. 

I registered a test user, but do not recieve an verification email.  When I go ahead and try to login with the test user, I get this message, and I never receive an email.

Warning: fsockopen(): unable to connect to smtpout.secureserver.net:25 in /home/content/m/r/o/mroach003a/html/includes/phpmailer/class.smtp.php on line 105
Your registration process is not yet complete! Please check again your email for further instructions that have just been resent. If you don't find the email, check your spam-box. Make sure that your email account options are not set to immediately delete spam. If that was the case, just try logging in again to receive a new instructions email.


Mailer:  SMTP Server 
Mail From:  "put my email address here"
From Name:  "web site address"
Sendmail Path:  "blank"
SMTP Auth:  Yes 
SMTP User:  "name@domain.com" as instructed
SMTP Pass:  "password"
SMTP Host:  smtpout.secureserver.net "per instructions in forums posts and godaddy

I have a site using dotnetnuke that I am trying to replace.  On that site, I have the same SMTP mail relay settings and it works.  The only difference is it asks for the type of AUTHENTICATION (anonymous, basic, or NTLM).

One thought I had was, in the error message "smtpout.secureserver.net:25", does the :25 refer to port 25?  Godaddy instructions for SMTP relay specify port 80 or 3535.  I don't see where I can configure this?

Anyone have any suggestions or have experience with this?

having same problem someone please reply ???

changed code in class.smtp.php

Line 30 to// var $SMTP_PORT = 80;
line 82 to // function Connect($host,$port=80,$tval=30) {

but still gives fsockopen(): unable to connect to smtpout.secureserver.net:25 // where is the 25 still coming from!!

(edit)
okay also edited "class.phpmailer.php" and i think it changed it, but now it hangs during the send process then it tries to download index.php(it is a blank file) just plain weird.. any way see post below for workaround but not a solution to orig problem.

somebody,anybody.  ???

cannot get smtp to work but php is okay

maybe this helps.
Below are the locations of important Linux binaries:

perl
/usr/bin/perl
php
/usr/bin/php
sendmail
/usr/sbin/sendmail

so the settings for php would simply be:(in global settings:mail)
Mailer: PHP mail function 
Mail From:yourname@yourdomain.com
From Name: yourname
Sendmail Path: /usr/bin/php

i know this does not solve your orig problem but maybe it is an acceptable workaround.

I think it should be 25 not 80, 80 is reserved for http

It's been several months since you guys have posted the questions. I'm having a similar issue. Has anyone found a solution?

I think godaddy has no solution. My site is hosted on their windows server and here is the reply i got from them.

"As we stated previously you are not on a Linux server. You currently have a windows hosting with IIS 7 which supports some php functions but not all of them. If you wish to use php mail functions and joomla php functions please switch your hosting account to a Linux server. Please use the directions we provided to you earlier to change the operating system of your hosting account."

I also have Windows IIS hosting and was finally able to get mine to send email properly. I detailed my solution in this post: viewtopic.php?f=428&t=460480

In the post just before this one, I posted a link to here: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=428&t=460480

This was a solution that worked for me.

There is an easy fix:

Change
SMTP Host: smtpout.secureserver.net
to
SMTP Host: relay-hosting.secureserver.net

Hey,

Use port 80, without ssl. If 80 does not work, try 25, 3535, 587
Host: smtpout.secureserver.net

I've run into these exact same issues re: smtp not parsing e-mails correctly. Am not sure if this is issue-specific to godaddy? Have had quite a few troubles with them but when running Joomla on my hostgator domains it works fine. Did you manage to resolve this dingbuasn?

viewtopic.php?f=615&t=647469. See my thread.

If you use relay-hosting.secureserver.net your mails will be delivered with a delay of 15 to 30 mins. Try to use my workaround.

maybe You should:
use + instead of @ in username,
use different ports (26 or 587)
try telnet on your windows command prompt to see if you can connect to that host or not!

In most of the cases with hosting the port of SMTP is 25 , heard of 2525 first time here on this thread. Anyways , your configuration seems to be correct , why don'y you contact godaddy support and explain them the problem in full details.

SMTP Security: None
SMTP Port: 25
SMTP Username: (Same value you entered for From Email)
SMTP Password: (The password you use to check that email address)

On the other hand, if you are NOT hosting on GoDaddy but want to use your GoDaddy email for the site:

Mailer: SMTP
From Email: (Any legit email address you have at your GoDaddy-hosted domain)
SMTP Authentication: Yes
SMTP Security: SSL
SMTP Port: 465
SMTP Username: (Same value you entered for From Email)
SMTP Password: (The password you use to check that email address)
SMTP Host: smtpout.secureserver.net

hi thanks for the reply.
i have another question..
is there any way i can link a gmail account instead of a godaddy account. i've tried a fair amount of stuff i found on the net but non works.
for example :
How do I use Gmail as my mail server?
From Joomla! Documentation
Share on twitterShare on facebookShare on google_plusone_shareShare on linkedinShare on pinterest_shareShare on emailMore Sharing Services
20
If you have a working Gmail account you can use Gmail as your mail server by setting it in the global configuration.

On the server tab set the following:

Mailer: SMTP
Set the next three lines with your information, leave your path untouched unless you are sure it needs to change for some reason.
SMTP Authentication: Yes
SMTP Security: SSL
SMTP Port 465
SMTP username: your gmail username
SMTP password: your gmail password
SMTP host: smtp.gmail.com
The following is also a working combination:

SMTP Security: TLS
SMTP Port 587
The SSL module does not need to be enabled in Apache.

please i need help
