I have tried to setup a smtp and i failed and the php mail used to work and now it doiesnt please help me

pm for a test account access from stafff +

my apologies as i am not active 100% of the time so i will check this post tomorrow and see what we have thankyou.....
Try to contact your host regarding the connection refused error there is nothing fixable from MyBB as there is nothing broken in MyBB.
i have contacted the host "Nuclear Fallout" this is what they told me:

........."you can't use SMTP to send automated mail. You can use sendmail/PHP Mail, however."

and the test script sent the mail to my yahoo account but the forums doesnt ...... so how is this an answer LOL did you not read what all i have done???
In your thread the problem is not cleared as per the error log i am only getting your connection is being refused to the mail host, can you try some other smtp mail providers like targethero, smtp2go, etc? and let me know if you are getting same error with other mail providers.
