How do i setup SMTP Mail its asking for ports and everything


RE: Anyway to stop verification emails going to junk - Vernier - 2012-07-04

Default port for SMTP is 25.

Please check your hosting account for these details, you may have received an email with all of these details when you bought the hosting (If it's payed hosting). Otherwise, please contact your host requesting these details.

So why is smtp better

As suggested above, try setting up SMTP mail. In order to do this, you will need to get the SMTP server details from your host (some don't even support it).

Re: Why is SMTP better? It isn't exactly but sometimes mail sent via PHP's mail() is blocked. A solution would be to add an SPF record for your domain but you'd likely have to ask your host about this.

Just changed to smtp went into the junk still any thing else i can do to fix this?


RE: Anyway to stop verification emails going to junk - Euan T - 2012-07-04

Contact your host. Adding an SPF header to your DNS usually helps but you'll likely have to ask your host to do that for you.


RE: Anyway to stop verification emails going to junk - pavemen - 2012-07-04

if you have control of your DNS, add a new TXT record that contains

v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX ?all

and change XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX to the IP of your server.

It does help if the ISP is pre-filtering your mail fo ryou, but this won't help if the recipients email client is aggressively filtering email. If that is the case, then nothing you do will help other than editing the activation email message to add/remove the keywords you think would trigger a filter or get you past one. A can-spam type message may help the email filter let it by, but its a mail client issue then and nothing you or the ISP can do much about

Hello Stefan,

SPF record has been added to your domain name, please let us know if you are still facing any issue.

So is that it? Should i use PHP or SMTP Now? or doesnt it matter
