trouble with email

edited April 2009 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
ok. I'm having a very strange time of it.

I use 1 and 1 for web hosting. I've got Vanilla set up and working except for one problem. Email.

I have their mail server set up in the configuration:
username, password are set properly.

If I run through the function SMTPSend in Framework.Class.Email.php via a telnet session, it works.

Here is the session log. Note I'm using port 25 here:

220 (mrus1) Welcome to Nemesis ESMTP server
250-SIZE 100000000
250 HELP
334 VXNlcm5hbWU6

<<<login password>>>
235 authentication finished successfully

250 <[email protected]> ok
354 Enter mail, end with "." on a line by itself

To: Mark <[email protected]>

this is hte message body
250 Message 0MKpCa-1Loiuk1ams-000cyr accepted by
I received the email at [email protected]

But If I try to create a user from the Membership Application Form, I get the following error:
Error Message
Unable to send email. The SMTP server reported the following error:
Affected Elements

The error occurred on or near: 504 LOGIN mechanism not supported
Any idea what I'm doing wrong? It seems like it should work if the telnet session works, right?


  • I called 1and1, and they say there is nothing on their end that should prevent a script to send an email.

    Any suggestions?
