Forum .LRN Q&A: Re: dotlrn can not send email

Posted by Andrew Piskorski on
I'm assuming dotLRN still uses ns_sendmail to send mail from AOLserver, like OpenACS has for years. So, in your AOLserver config.tcl file, look in the ns/parameters section and check the values, if any, that you have for these parameters:
smtphost, mailhost, smtptimeout, smtpport
For most people, simply not setting any of those at all will do the right thing. But if you have an atypical mail server setup, you'll need to specify non-default values for some them. You have qmail running on the same box so you don't need to set smtphost at all, but maybe it is set, but to the wrong value?
