  • vBulletin 2.0 Mail or SMTP?

    How do you setup vBulletin 2.0 to work with windows 2000 and mail on windows 2000. IS there any problems with this and should this work fine. If there is any hting i would need to do please let me know. As mailtest.php says this.

    Warning: Unknown error in C:\wwwroot\resadmin\myhostfinder\\www\forum\extras\mailtest.php on line 12

    Mail sent. Were any errors shown? If there were, mail is probably not set up correctly.

    Have you specified your smtp server in your php.ini file? This is required for Win32 servers running PHP.

          Still Not working

          Well i am still trying to get the mail to work in VB2.0 beta 2 before i do any hting else with it but this is nuts. Now it seems no PHP mail will work here is what my php files says where it has to do with the mail.

          define_syslog_variables = Off ; Whether or not to define the various syslog variables,
          ; e.g. $LOG_PID, $LOG_CRON, etc. Turning it off is a
          ; good idea performance-wise. In runtime, you can define
          ; these variables by calling define_syslog_variables()

          [mail function]
          SMTP = localhost ;for win32 only
          sendmail_from = [email protected] ;for win32 only
          ;sendmail_path = ;for unix only, may supply arguments as well (default is 'sendmail -t -i')

          Replaces mydomain with but i have the right one in there. This is on a Windows 2000 system i have been trying localhost my mail server address ip address nothing seems to work is there any thing else that may need to be done.

          Does it need sendmail_from and SMTP there it says for win 32 only but does not say if i need them both or just one so i have it as both for now.

          Any help would be great.
