SMTP - Auth 'Login' not supported?

Hi.

My webhost requires that I use SMTP to send out emails and the 'Login' Auth method is required to do so and am therefore currently getting a "550 relay not permitted " error as I assume it may be just using the Auth 'Plain' method.
Does anyone know how this can be configured?
Thanks,
Reece

Hello!

Judging by the code, it should be supported. Can you tell us how you configured your account (without the password, obviously)?

P.S.: Sorry for not replying earlier.

Re: SMTP - Auth 'Login' not supported?

Hi, not a problem.

First of all apparently my webhost actually just uses the 'Plain' login method.

Secondly I entered my correct smtp server, email login and password, as I would do with any other software and get the 550 relay not permitted error every time FluxBB tries to send an email from the mail account.

Thirdly, to fix this my web host simply allows me to miss out the password so i assume it can use no Auth at all.
However this may still mean that there may be a problem/incompatibility with the Auth of FluxBB (and PunBB), could be wrong. smile

Re: SMTP - Auth 'Login' not supported?

I have been running a SMTP with Auth configuration for a long time and I have no issues.
1/ Check that your web server's IP address is listed in the postfix's main.cf  file in the 'mynetworks' variable. (assuming you are running Postfix as a SMTP server) If it is not that is why the mails are rejected
2/ In Fluxbb's Options tab of the Admin panel enter your mail server's address as mail.example.com:25 or mail.example.com:465 or mail.example.com:587 depending on which port your mail server is listening
