  • Question about config.php and email

    I've had a number of auto-emails rejected because the emails my vb is sending is using:

    [email protected]

    as the userid in the return.

    So, I'm looking on my server where to change this.

    In my config.php (which was set up years ago...literally!...by someone else) it has:

    $servername="localhost";

    Is this the problem?

    I changed "localhost" to be my domain name...and instead of fixing the email, my VB was putting out errors:
    Database error in vBulletin :

    Link-ID == false, connect failed
    mysql error: Access denied for user: '[email protected]' (Using password: YES)

    mysql error number: 1045

    Date: Saturday 28th of December 2002 11:39:11 AM
    Script: /vb2/showthread.php?threadid=84839&goto=newpost
    Referer:
    Needless to say, I put "localhost" back...and am baffled. No where have I used the password: YES

    And yes...I removed my domain name in the above error for safety reasons

    Ideas?

    This cannot be changed in config.php or any vB file. This is a server issue. You'll need to contact your web host and ask them to check the mail settings for PHP and the mail server and modify them accordingly.

      Thanks Steve. And is "localhost" okay for my VB servername?

        Yes, leave it at 'localhost'.
