Support » Fixing WordPress » external mail server for sending comment moderatio

  • The server (Mac OS X Server) I have WP running on has sendmail turned off. I have comments going to moderation before posting, but so far the response that’s mailed to posters after approval don’t appear to be going anywhere. Is there a way to set an external mail server for SMTP?
    I tried hard coding the server in class-pop3.php
    var $MAILSERVER = ‘server.dom’;
    But this doesn’t work.

    You’ll need to change your php.ini.

    Hi allusion
    I’m having a bit of trouble determining the right line(s) to add in the php.ini
    I’ve tried the following, singly and in various combinations, including all 3 (I do restart the server everytime, and when I check the php configurations, it shows that these are being recognized):
    sendmail_from = mailserver.dom
    sendmail_path = mailserver.dom
    SMTP = mailserver.dom
    What is this clueless person missing?
