hey just tought i could ask you something about forums.
i got a invision power board , so the same like this.
and my problem is i cant send mails from the forum.
if i try the method:
mail()
i just get this in my mail error logs:
"Could not send the email"
yeah easy to understand but idk how to fix.
then i tried the other method
with SMTP
if i want to send a mail i get this error:
"Could not open a socket to the SMTP server
Could not open a socket to the SMTP server"

maybe anyone know what i need to do? btw must i set up the settings for SMTP?
thx
CeNt3R~

Well, I'm not really an expert on sending mail thing. But I do have a question for you though that would help others to help you. Do you have any mail server set up? If you are using a webhost, check if they have the mail server set up. Also, if you use SMTP, you need to specify a number of things.

Btw, is there more to the error log? Maybe more details could help us understand your situation.
