Hi there, I'm trying to setup SMTP with my IPB forum however whenever I try to send an email from the forum such as a newsletter i get the error: "Could not open a socket to the SMTP server"

Anyone know why this would be happening? Or how to fix it?

Regards, JJEdgar

Re: Could not open a socket to the SMTP server

Do you use correct smtp port (25 or 587) in IPB?

Yes, I've tried both and both give the same error.

Maybe it's better to ask for IPB support, it's not an iRedMail issue.
