I am trying to work out the email system within opencart.
How does the contact form work? I have used the form and I get the message Your enquiry has been successfully sent to the store owner! but when I check the email address of the store owner there is no email.
Also I have put in all the email settings to system/settings/mail as here:
Mail Protocol: mail
SMTP Host: mydomain.com
SMTP Username: email@example.com
SMTP Password: emailpassword
SMTP Port: 25
SMTP Timeout: 5
I selected yes to the two option boxes
When I send an email using the website contact form (the contact us page generated with information pages within the admin section of the site). Or send an email via the admin area to the subscribers (there are two test ones with my emails addresses attached) all said success. However I get no emails!
My site in online so the email should work!
Any ideas thank you.
When u select protocol mail you do not need the smtp parameters.
You do not give enough information is this a test server on your localhost if so your isp could be blocking port 25.
If this is a live server at a hosting company do they support the php mail it is very unlikely that they do not than you will need to select mail protocol smtp.
But like i said not enough information a million things could be wrong.
