SMTP Settings (Mibew 3.2.7)
« on: January 07, 2021, 09:59:17 PM »
OK, so... I know this question has been asked before and that there's some advice in the FAQ but... the old questions are from around a decade ago and I followed the FAQ's advice but nothing.

So I have a problem with the mailing system that's supposed to send an email when no moderators are connected, when I try to use it, a dotted spinning wheel appears and never stops.

I'm supposed to set mibew to use a SMTP server,  but I already tried including the following in config.yml:

    transport: "smtp"
    host: ""
    port: 587
    user: "xxx@xxx.xx.xx"
    pass: "xxx"
    encryption: false

I also tried editing the files vendor/swiftmailer/swiftmailer/lib/classes/Swift/SmtpTransport.php and /configs/default_configs.yml

So yeah, some advice would be much appreciated, and thank you for your attention.

P.D: I actually managed to make the Drupal SMTP settings work, so at least I know the host is working just fine... but still.

If you're sure that your mail server works fine, something is wrong with the configuration of Mibew Messenger and/or with the accessibility of your mail server from your web server. One should check the logs of both servers for any errors.

I also tried editing the files vendor/swiftmailer/swiftmailer/lib/classes/Swift/SmtpTransport.php

It's almost always a bad idea to mess with an included vendor software. Unless it's absolutely necessary and you're really know what you're doing.


It's useless. That file is just an example of configuration. Mibew Messenger doesn't use it.
