Can't send email with MediaTemple
« on: August 11, 2006, 08:29:21 AM »
I've got RoundCube installed with no hiccups. It's running smoothly. But for some reason it will not let me send email or save drafts. Whenever I try it gives me a "Failed to send message" error. When I check my log file it says:

[11-Aug-2006 05:23:28 -0700] SMTP Error: SMTP error: Failed to send data
 in /home/virtual/site222/fst/var/www/html/mail.gladevillechurch.org/program/steps/mail/sendmail.inc on line 253

Here's how my main.inc.php is set-up:

// the mail host chosen to perform the log-in
// leave blank to show a textbox at login, give a list of hosts
// to display a pulldown menu or set one host as string.
// To use SSL connection, enter ssl://hostname:993
$rcmail_config['default_host'] = 'mail.gladevillechurch.org';

// TCP port used for IMAP connections
$rcmail_config['default_port'] = 143;

// Automatically add this domain to user names for login
// Only for IMAP servers that require full e-mail addresses for login
// Specify an array with 'host' => 'domain' values to support multiple hosts
$rcmail_config['username_domain'] = '';

// This domain will be used to form e-mail addresses of new users
// Specify an array with 'host' => 'domain' values to support multiple hosts
$rcmail_config['mail_domain'] = '';

// Path to a virtuser table file to resolve user names and e-mail addresses
$rcmail_config['virtuser_file'] = '';

// Query to resolve user names and e-mail addresses from the database
// %u will be replaced with the current username for login.
// The query should select the user's e-mail address as first col
$rcmail_config['virtuser_query'] = '';

// use this host for sending mails.
// to use SSL connection, set ssl://smtp.host.com
// if left blank, the PHP mail() function is used
$rcmail_config['smtp_server'] = 'mail.gladevillechurch.org';

// SMTP port (default is 25; 465 for SSL)
$rcmail_config['smtp_port'] = 25;

// SMTP username (if required) if you use %u as the username RoundCube
// will use the current username for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_user'] = '%u';

// SMTP password (if required) if you use %p as the password RoundCube
// will use the current user's password for login
$rcmail_config['smtp_pass'] = '%p';

// SMTP AUTH type (DIGEST-MD5, CRAM-MD5, LOGIN, PLAIN or empty to use
// best server supported one)
$rcmail_config['smtp_auth_type'] = '';

// Log sent messages
$rcmail_config['smtp_log'] = TRUE;

Anyone else had this problem with a RoundCube installation on MediaTemple?

I've got the exact same problem. I checked out the latest svn release to try and overcome this problem, unfortunately i'm not able to discover what the problem might be. One thing i'm sure of is that it's not my smtp server, because i tried several (local and remote). Clarification is highly appreciated, thanks in advance.

I also had this problem, but only when sending to users on the same domain. My solution was to have the mail sent by php send rather than smtp. To do this, simply leave the smtp server address blank. Seems to work fine.
