Hello  I have followed guide and settings to get email set up so that system sends emails out if cliknig forgot password however does not send the emails out. Is their no built in email client with mf to send system messages out if not then I have tried and followed the setup process with gmail and still doe not send emails out.


You can use any google email both a single or a domain based one as long as the settings are inputted correctly. The guide shows both methods ive used in the past. Although SMF can use PHP to send mail I myself havent used this feature as my domains had their own urls to use.

For anyone having trouble with SMTP mail setting check to make sure your host does not have port 465 blocking outgoing connection.
Once my host lifted the block all worked well for me.

Dear Team,

Yep, that's the day they tightened up the AUTH validator.

The link supplied by Irisado does contain a pointer to the fix.

I have a question: Is there a way of avoiding this email sending limit?
