My ISP now requires all emails going through their server to authenticate against the server (i.e., send the username/password when sending email). I can't find any fixes here for this, NONE of my MBs emails are going out. I'm surprised this hasn't come up before, or at least I haven't found anything about it on this site. Has anyone written a Mod/Hack for UBB that sends authentication to an email server? I wrote one for a piece of auction software, but the email structure of UBB is MUCH different and if I don't have to re-invent the wheel I'd like to avoid doing so...

Do they require POP-before-SMTP, or SMTP auth? The components to do SMTP auth are in the mail libs as of 6.4, so if that's what you need, I can show you how to turn them on. smile

That's odd as most providers only require this from out side there own dominion.

That is that u are running on a server that is not from them. But even then it should be very easy, as i did as well, the get in contact with them to let access go thru from your ip address.

Otherwise it would make hell for everyone to get some web based email worm think working.

Do they, by chance, have sendmail installed? or is it just a NT hosting with SMTP?

I'm hosting the board on an NT server in my house, and the email is going out through my ISP. I'm actually still using 6.2 but I figured I'd throw it in this section because I never saw anyone mention a fix and thought it would be a good suggestion. Is there a way to turn on SMTP Auth in 6.2 or do I have to upgrade?

Yeah, you'll need to upgrade in order to get the new mailing routines. You *MIGHT* be able to get away with just the new Modules directory and the new ubb_lib_mail, but that's a little on the risky side.

Would it be against the rules to ask for just the new email routines?

Yeah, we can't do that. You'd have to have current Member Area access, and even then you could easily do it yourself. lib_mail and the modules are just drop-in replacements for what's there already.

Ok.. this is wierd. I just got a message from InfoPOP support that smtp authentication is NOT supported. What's the deal? This thread is from 2003. I am in the same situation. My host now requires SMTP AUthentication for the email to work.

Please Help!!!

As far as i know, Infopop (now Groupee) has always supported SMTP authentication however it required a patch from them to function...

The deal is that we no longer officially provide that patch via a support ticket.

Find this comment in UBBCGI/Modules/MIME/Lite.pm:

# Yes, we can do this now, if required!

Aaaand guess what you need to do to the next line? wink

You will need an installation of the Authen::SASL Perl module installed, and that is the hard part.
