smtp emails not sending
October 12, 2007

Hi Oliver,

first of all, great plugin. A lot of work gone into this and it looks beautiful. My little problem is my host does not allow mail to be sent on the "nobody@user" account which I believe is the default account used by phpmail(). Anyway I know smtp works on my host as I have a non-wordpress site working and I have trialled various smtp plugins on my wordpress site and all emails come through as expected. However I cannot seem to get your beautiful form to send the data anywhere. The url of my site in development is I'm developing in firefox and have no other plugins activated, including no smtp plugins. I have copied and renamed class-phpmailer to class.phpmailer in the wp-includes dir. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as this is the last requirement for this site to be completed.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Troy,

Maybe there was a misunderstanding, cforms does expect 'class-phpmailer.php' as well as 'class-smtp.php' in the wp-include dir. This should work with WP 2.3 out of the box (pre WP2.3 you had to rename class-smtp.php to class.smtp.php).

Try that. Also, note that if your SMTP host requires strong authentication/encryption, this may not work for you based on the limitations that class-phpmailer.php comes with.

Hi Oliver,

Thanks for the quick response. It seems my host requires me to use the Mail.php in PEAR to send mail by smtp. I have tested this and it works but I can't seem to get it to work within my wordpress structure. Anyway was wondering if it's possible to have your plugin reference the Mail.php file in PEAR?
