Maybe a silly ? but you did not use 587,25. You did delete 25 and only use 587.

My problem with receiving alert emails is very similar to many that have been raised in this thread, but as usual in life, it's not exactly the same as any of them!

I've been using OpenCart 1.4.9 successfully for about nine months, but have never been able to make it send alert emails when someone places an order. But here's the strange thing - it DOES sucessfully transmit an email message when someone fills in the "Contact Us" form in the store. This makes me think I must have configured email sending correctly. Or have I? Is the mechanism for sending contact messages different in some way from the one for sending order alerts?

I have set the parameters on the Mail tab to "Mail" (not SMTP), which successfully sends contact messages. All the other fields are blank apart from port (25) and timeout (5). I have also tried various SMTP configurations, but when I apply these, even the Contact Us messages don't get through. Using "localhost" or just the domain name, I get a set of "fsockopen" errors similar to those quoted in this thread. If I enter a complete set of SMTP parameters for a known email address, I get a screen message saying the message has been sent, but it does not actually arrive. So "Mail" seems to be the only configuration that gets anything through.

I use 1&1 hosting, and I know that some people think this is problematic, but I have built several other non-shopping web sites on 1&1 using normal php mail for contact forms, and these always work fine.

Could my mail configuration be wrong, or am I missing some other basic setting that would solve the problem of not getting order alerts? Thanks!

I'm waiting the 1&1 response support service for more than 36 hours!! I'm not happy with this... :'(

Here are the code I use from ssh console to make the tries more quicly than opencart options...

Code: Select all

<?php
require_once "Mail.php";

$from = "";
$to = "";
$subject = "";
$body = "";

$host = "";
$username = "";
$password = "";
$port = "";

$headers = array ('From' => $from,
  'To' => $to,
  'Subject' => $subject);
$smtp = Mail::factory('smtp',
  array ('host' => $host,
    'port' => $port,
    'auth' => true,
    'username' => $username,
    'password' => $password));

$mail = $smtp->send($to, $headers, $body);

if (PEAR::isError($mail)) {
  echo("<p>" . $mail->getMessage() . "</p>");
 } else {
  echo("<p>Message successfully sent!</p>");
 }
?>

The technical service confirm that 1and1 don't have allowed the service SMTP between our WEB Servers and Mail Servers on port 25 or 587.

Sorry for jumping on this post

In a nutshell - admin not getting any emails at all all though the order confirmation is being sent to clients. But clients are not getting return emails with an RMA - Am i right in thinking that this functionality is not working

Basically I'm running OC 1.5.0.5 - I have done a fair bit of tweaking and hence don't want to upgrade - i need to get my site fully tested by the end of the year.
Hosted with uk2.net
Linux
Apache 2.2.21
PHP 5.2.17
MySQL 5.0.92

The package works like a dream elsewhere but this is frustrating the hell out of me.

Have changed the sys settings on admin side to everything I can think off - mail to smtp and then various smtp ports 25/465/587 - I'm not getting any error messages just no emails to either admin or client.

Any help much appreciated.
Best
John


Actually just sorted the admin email issue - but can anyone help with the RMA issue.

Well, after WEEKS of having my company's IT tech look into server settings, me researching countless sites, and a ton of other things we looked into....this is how I resolved it for us.

In the "Settings" area, under the "Mail" tab.....first select "SMTP", then make sure that the "SMTP Host" is set to the same thing you used when setting up the core install. For example, I used "localhost" when setting up the core install, therefore, it was necessary to put "localhost" in the "SMTP Host" area rather than "incoming.domain.com" or "mail.domain.com"

Everything works fine with my forms/email now. Try that and let us know if that works for you.

Try contacting your host. I had to call Hostmonster and because we are using in-house MX servers for our email, we had to make sure that whatever email we wanted to use in Opencart had an email account setup in our cPanel, and they (Hostmoster) had to make sure the email was set to "remote" on their end (since we use in-house MX servers for our email). Once they changed that setting and we set the SMTP host to "localhost", everything works fine now.

In system->settings->mail you have to specify in the hostname if you are using ssl or tsl. I use zoho and they give a hostname like this: smtp.zoho.eu . You have to use ssl://smtp.zoho.eu or tsl://smtp.zoho.eu in order for the smtp mail to work. For me this solved everything. Hope it helps ;D
