I have read several posts indicating that this is not straight forward for some of us. .
Should the dropdown at the top be MAIL or SMTP ? if me.com settings are smtp.me.com
Should the SMTP server field be prefixed with https:// or ssl:// etc ?
Is there any other reason why Opencart says the email is sent, but the email does not arrive ?
Tried testing out with SMTP option and smtp server to both mail.mydomain.com and also localhost (as someone suggested in a past thread) but none of it works. I'm presently checking with my webhost (hostmonster) to see if they know how to get this fixed.
Hoping someone would help sort this issue.
If you are using the php MAIL function, just set the protocol to MAIL and leave the other fields blank.
If you intend using SMTP as your mail protocol, you need to set a few things, specifically SMTP Host, SMTP Username, SMTP Password and SMTP Port. By using SMTP as the protocol, you will be using your ISP provided host, username, password and port. In other words, you use the SAME settings you would using in your email client (Thunderbird, Outlook, Outlook Express, etc).
- SMTP Host: mail.yourisp.com
SMTP Username: your isp username
SMTP Password: your isp password
SMTP Port: 25

If you're not living on the edge ... you're taking up too much space!
All I needed to do was choose the Mail Protocol 'Mail' option and remove my email address from the Mail Parameters section, for some reason I thought I was meant to have it there and it clearly shouldn't have been!
Hope this helps.
thi is what i set:
Mail protocol: SMTP
SMTP server: ssl://smtp.gmail.com
Hope this help Merry Christmas Everyone & a Happy New Year
Hi loraluks, same with you....loraluks wrote:Using just the "Mail" option hasn't helped much really. No emails are sent out when a user registers/places an order.
Strangely enough, only the contact form works.
Only contact form that really works with me. Im using v14.9.3 version.
When user place an order, they didn't receive any email. But as an admin I get the email with email@example.com.
I place other alerts email for me in alert email option with firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
With mydomain.com email, I can get confirmation but not with yahoo,gmail or others email.
When I register as an user with firstname.lastname@example.org email, I can get confirmation email.
But not with others email such us yahoo, gmail, hotmail.
I'm still looking solution for this problem.
