  • SMTP settings not working

    Hello!

    v5.2.3, PHP 5.6.24 (CLI), CPANEL 54 / CentOS 6.7

    SMTP is throwing an error:
    Warning: fsockopen(): unable to connect to tcp://mail.jonespub.com:25 (Connection refused) in .../vb/mail/smtp.php on line 181 Warning: Unable to connect to SMTP server in .../vb/mail/smtp.php on line 147
    telnet check via commandline from the virtual server seems to be successful.

    Any ideas why SMTP is not working?

    Thanks!


    [SOLVED] This turned out to be a setting in cpanel: WHM --> Tweak Settings --> Mail -->
    Restrict outgoing SMTP to root, exim, and mailman (FKA SMTP Tweak)

    It was set to on.
