Re: Where is the setting for mail server config?

Hey sambauers

Thanks for the response :)

I just found out that the standard php mail() function does not support SMTP authentication, and that the only way for me to rectify this problem is to either get my hosting provider to change their server settings, or some sort of workaround using the PEAR Mail package which apparently provides supporting functions useful to multiple mailer backends. It currently suppors: PHP’s native mail() function, sendmail, and SMTP.

I will keep you posted because if my hosting provider isn’t prepared to change his server authentication requirements, this PEAR-shaped workaround may turn out to be a good one for other bbpress users with the same problem.

Thanks :)
