Voting starts in March for the Drupal Association Board election.
I have the newest stable version of Drupal and everything seems to work fine except for the email. I have checked the forums and handbook to no avail. The bottom line is that my mail is sent through an external SMTP server that requires authentication.
The exact error is: warning: mail() [function.mail]: SMTP server response: 550 Relaying denied without SMTP AUTH in C:\...\includes\mail.inc on line 193.
So, how do I get the php to send username and password authentication to the SMTP server? PHP.INI has the correct servername and ports and seems to work because the SMTP server is receving something, but not doing anything without the username and password.
This is a Windows server, with Apache, MySQL and PHP. All are up to date as I tried that first.
I found a couple of posts that there was a module to fix this (but version 5) and other comments that lead to webpages that no longer existed.
I am a Drupal and PHP newbie, but have set up SMTP in Perl before so I have some comfort level with configuration files. Any help would be appreciated.
