Hello,

I am trying to set email from my web server which we hosted ourself.

I already set my php.ini to smtp.indonusa.net.id and from email: davy@indonusa.net.id

to: davy_yg@yahoo.com

The program seems to works fine.

Yet, I do not receive any email yet as I suppose to. Someone mentions to me that I suppose to be able to send email from my Windows Server 2012 command prompt. I already try to send email from Windows Server 2012: email

I cannot find the telnet also. I already try to follow the instruction in the link:

C:\Users\Administrator>Telnet
'Telnet' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I wonder why?

    There are a lot of examples in this forum already with PhpMailer and Gmail, do a search. IIRC Gmail uses TLS on port 587. Read More

    **@pritaeas** Whoops, I didn't saw your reply! With Gmail you can use `AUTH LOGIN`, but you need an application-specific password before you can go further, read this: * https://support.google.com/mail/answer/1173270?hl=en Then generate the password from here: * https://www.google.com/accounts/IssuedAuthSubTokens?hide_authsub=1 And then embed this password in your script, as example: <?php require './PHPMailerAutoload.php'; … Read More

For the usage of 'telnet' on Windows, you need to install the 'Telnet Client' on your system. To install the 'Telnet Client' follow the instructions:

  1. Start Server Manager. Click Start, right-click Computer, and then click Manage.
  2. If the User Account Control dialog box appears, confirm that the action it displays is what you want, and then click Continue.
  3. In the Features Summary section, click Add features.
  4. In the Add Features Wizard, select Telnet Client, and then click Next.
  5. On the Confirm Installation Options page, click Install.
  6. When installation finishes, on the Installation Results page, click Close.

Note: After the installation make sure to restart the system because sometimes the new environment variables are configured only after the restart of system.

Moreover you can also try extenal lib like 'PHPMailer' or 'Swift Mailer' to send an email in PHP.

Thanks!

I already telnet port 25 and it's closed.

How to open port 25? (for mail) in Windows Server 2012

0

I already try place exception for port 25 in the firewall:

http://www.wikihow.com/Open-Port-25

Microsoft Telnet> open localhost 25
Connecting To localhost...Could not open connection to the host, on port 25: Con
nect failed
Microsoft Telnet> open port 25
Connecting To port...Could not open connection to the host, on port 25: Connect

And it still does not work yet.

We send emails from our own server. My friend give me an empty server with Windows 2012 OS but I have to konfigure the rest myself and I am using xampp for the webserver.

I already konfigure the SMTP setting:

Setting webserver php.ini
SMTP: smtp2.indonusa.net.id
smtp_port = 25

Setting webserver sendmail/sendmail.ini
SMTP: smtp2.indonusa.net.id
smtp_port = 25

Microsoft Telnet> Microsoft Telnet> open localhost 25
Connecting To localhost...Could not open connection to the host, on port 25: Connect failed

I still wonder why?

Are you sure smtp2 exists? And which mail server is configured under this domain? Xampp doesn't provide a mail server. Also check the DNS records or your domain, I see:

so it seems that your mail servers are mx[1,2,3].idcloud.biz, try to connect to number 3:

telnet mx3.idcloud.biz:25

If it works, then try to configure PHP to connect directly with this server.

Hi, I have encountered the same problem except that you are using yahoo and I am using gmail. My code and everthing else is working fine yet I am not recieving any messages. Then I found out that the problem is the email itself. So what I did is to enable the settings for less secure account (https://www.google.com/settings/security/lesssecureapps)..Then my problem was solved.

0

Well someone mention that mx3.idcloud.biz:25 is not our server. It's someone else.

I suppose to use telnet smtp.indonusa.net.id 25

220 EHUB3.idcloud.biz Microsoft ESMTP MAIL Service ready at Mon, 18 Aug 2014 15:
35:40 +0700

Looks like it's ready.

Here is my code:

sendmail.ini

smtp.indonusa.net.id
smtp_port=25

php.ini

SMTP = smtp.indonusa.net.id
smtp_port = 25

After the person press the next button from registration1.php he will be taken to registration2.php

I already test the program and check my email afterward and I do not receive any email in davy@indonusa.net.id

Any idea what else I should do to set my webserver so that it can send automatic email to my email address?

Check the error log of the mail server application. If the mail is not sent or it is rejected the log should have a trace of it.

Someone else mention that I should input the username & password which belongs to: $to

syntax: mail($to, $subject, $message, $from);

but I do not know how to code it, is this correct?

$mail->Username = ‘username email’; //username email

$mail->Password = ‘password email’; //password email

mail($to, $subject, $message, $from);

Or is there any other syntax that works?

I already look for one but it's incorrect.

PHPMailer

It seems the encoding of your editor change it to UTF8, and replace ‘ and ’ with double quotes.

0

I fix the encoding thing, but now I cannot find the complete package of PHPMailerClass and it's other complementary files.

PHPMailerClass

It looks like now that I have to fix it one by one, like adding :

PHPMailerAutoload

Then, I have another error to fix like:

Fatal error: Class 'SMTP' not found in C:\xampp\htdocs\phpmailer\class.phpmailer.php on line 1202

line 1202 :

 if (!is_object($this->smtp)) {
            $this->smtp = new SMTP;
        }

Is there a complate PHPMailer Class like where it's all in one package?

Edited by davy_yg

0

Yes, it happens because you are linking directly to the phpmailer class, you have to require the autoload, so instead of:

require_once("phpmailer/class.phpmailer.php");

Do:

require $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/phpmailer/PHPMailerAutoload.php';

AS written in the documentation:

PHPMailer provides an SPL-compatible autoloader, and that is the preferred way of loading the library - just require '/path/to/PHPMailerAutoload.php'; and everything should work.

0

ok, now I already replace:

require_once("phpmailer/class.phpmailer.php");

with:

require $_SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] . '/phpmailer/PHPMailerAutoload.php';

And I still have this error:

Fatal error: Class 'SMTP' not found in C:\xampp\htdocs\phpmailer\class.phpmailer.php on line 1202

0

ok, this time I get this message:

2014-08-21 13:22:01 SMTP ERROR: Failed to connect to server: (0) 2014-08-21 13:22:01 SMTP connect() failed. Your message has been sent, we will get back to your shortly.

failed to connect to SMTP. why is it?

0

It's probably generated by:

$mail->Host = "ssl://smtp.indonusa.net.id";

does ssl listen on port 25?

0

This line:

$mail->Host = "ssl://smtp.indonusa.net.id";

...should not contain ssl:// at the beginning. I'm fairly certain it should simply be:

$mail->Host = "smtp.indonusa.net.id";

If not, specity http:// at the beginning. The reason I believe you don't need it is because this line:

$mail->SMTPSecure = '';

...is what determines if it uses an SSL connection or a standard connection.

Just trying to confirm:
you do understand that

  1. windows xampp wamp et al do not include mail servers
  2. The resources linked to refer to linux and windows xp not windows 2012 systems.

  3. That external mail servers require authentication not included in any of the scripts so far shown

The method for accessing an smtp host is very similar to accessing your sql DB server
Server, Port, Name, password, are all required
Borzoi is correct;
Usually the hosts are 'smtp.server.com'
the protocol is taken care of by other declarations,
what the instructions say you can and
what best practice says you should
are way different

You can jump off a 1000 foot cliff,
but you probably shouldn't, and you cant do it twice.

REQUIRED pop and smtp server connection details will likely be in the Host's helpscreens

Hi, you are correct, but the value refers to the socket opened by the library, which allows the above syntax.

At the end the connection will be executed by line 1332:

if ($this->smtp->connect($prefix . $host, $port, $this->Timeout, $options))

This is the linked documentation:

/**
 * SMTP hosts.
 * Either a single hostname or multiple semicolon-delimited hostnames.
 * You can also specify a different port
 * for each host by using this format: [hostname:port]
 * (e.g. "smtp1.example.com:25;smtp2.example.com").
 * You can also specify encryption type, for example:
 * (e.g. "tls://smtp1.example.com:587;ssl://smtp2.example.com:465").
 * Hosts will be tried in order.
 * @type string
 */
public $Host = 'localhost';

Link:

Then check:

Which is where the string is verified. By using the above you override the default settings.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I think the issue here is given by the port number for the ssl connection. Bye!

allows, does not mean should, port numbers for ssl connections may be 25, but are ofter 465 585
The host should have the ports on its setup helpscreens

Probably not, but the instruction guide me to place ssl:// before I input the smtp name.

ok, I'll try removing the ssl:// and this message what I get:

Ok, this is a problem:

2014-08-21 22:38:12 SERVER -> CLIENT: 504 5.7.4 Unrecognized authentication type

You send AUTH LOGIN as authentication type, but there are different methods supported by PHPMailer (line 311 & 274):

PLAIN, LOGIN, NTLM, CRAM-MD5

That can be set by the AuthType property, for example:

$mail->AuthType = 'NTLM';

The default value is LOGIN, check the documentation about your SMTP server.

Yes, it happens because you are linking directly to the phpmailer class, you have to require the autoload
Thanks for

ok, then which authentication type should I use?

My smtp server is smtp.indonusa.net.id and someone mention that I have to use user & password which I already include in my coding:

$mail->AuthType = 'NTLM';

$mail->Username = "davy@indonusa.net.id"; //username email

$mail->Password = "*********"; //password email

This message that I get (other login authentication type besides NTLM gives authentication error message):

Include the extras directory into phpmailer/. That solves the require_once error. Then retry.

If in doubt ask to the mail server admin.
