@Zydron & @Myatu

I would like to thank you for replying because you replied you solved my problem it wouldn't accept mail.domain.com but it would accept ns0.ovh.net and it all work's perfectly now!

Once again thank you!

replace localhost with mail.yourdomain.co.uk or ns0.ovh.net indeed

else it won't work in your current configuration


@myatu, we all know that OVH uses strange names for their servers
dns it here hosted at ns12 and ns16

I don't know more, because I don't use Joomla! often.


ow btw, the thing that I know for sure is that the SMTP server isn't running at localhost.
OVH uses a computer cluster, which means that your site is served by more then 1 computer at ones.

You can find the SMTP server in your DNS records by the MX record. (often: mail.yourdomain.co.uk) (replace yourdomain.co.uk with the domain you use)
I used smtp. mail. it still didn't work

Hello!

I setup a joomla website,

But it always errors when I create a user saying it cannot find the SMTP server

Settings are..

SMTP Server
name@domain.co.uk
/usr/sbin/sendmail (Sendmail Path)
SMTP Auth = Yes
SMTP Security = No
SMTP Port = 25
User = ...
Pass = ...
Host = localhost

What's the problem?
P.S The user details are correct

Regards,
Danny,
Thank you for any replys.
