SMTP problem - how to generate an error log
I am trying to use the SMTP settings to send mail on our internal servers and even though all the configuration options are correct (and various versions have been tried), we always get either 'could not connect to the SMTP host' or 'could not authenticate'. However, our mail servers show that no attempts to authenticate have been made.
Naturally, I don't expect anyone to be able to help with the SMTP side of our system (and a search of the community tells me not to continue looking for an answer her). HOwever, we can see no way of getting an error log that will give us some idea of what is happening and how we can fix the problem.
This email issue is preventing us from using the forum at the moment, so we are keen to discover where the issue is in order to troubleshoot. Looking through the community, I can only seem to find references to error logging of specific applications/plugins.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
