outgoing Mail/SMTP not working on 2.0.3 > needed for invitation-based registration


kudos to Vanilla - insanely great work!

Smooth install to maintain a newly founded Waldorf school in Munich, Germany:

Installed Vaillaforums 2.0.3 on PHP Version 5.2.12, MySQL 5.0.89

Outgoing email doesn't seem to work - for both the [1] external SMTP and [2] local mail server: Any mail-based operation idles indefinitely.

Yet notifications for commented/new messages do work, mail is received to/from

Trying to find the bug:

[1] SMTP-settings are verified, mail can be sent/received wit these credentials:
# SMTP Host:
# SMTP User:
# SMTP Password ****
# SMTP Port: 25
# SMTP Security: [none]

SMTP-Security settings don't make a difference - tested all.

We need Outgoing mail/SMTP will to utilize invitation-based registration.

Anyone help me with this, please?

    So you are saying some of the notifications work, but invitations don't?

    um, nope ... outgoing mail from vanilla isn't working at all:
    negative for both for the [1] external SMTP and [2] local mail server

    The mailaccount under [1] is working, IMAP though ... does that make a difference?
