    This does not seem to be working for me. It seems to be trying to use the server’s SMTP info. I tried two different SMTP servers, Google Apps and Gmail and got the same error (note that vpscloud005.basiclink.com is my web server):

    SMTP -> FROM SERVER:220-vpscloud005.basiclink.com ESMTP Exim 4.80.1 #2 Wed, 21 Aug 2013 16:26:44 -0700

    220 and/or bulk e-mail.

    Hi, the error is right there:

    We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
    220 and/or bulk e-mail.

    Please contact your hosting provider and they will be able to help you.

    We this working by using the local smtp server of our host rather than the gmail smtp server in our config.

    I resolved this by going to WHM (cPanel) and changing the following setting:
    Server Configuration
    Tweak Settings
    “Mail” tab
    Restrict outgoing SMTP to root, exim, and mailman (FKA SMTP Tweak) -> On
    Prevent “nobody” from sending mail -> On

    If you don’t have access to this setting, contact your host.

    Hi Yaron Guez,

    I have followed your steps, It does not work for me….

    It doesn’t work even for me.
