    Make sure your SMTP settings are correct.
  • Hi Mark.

    I have checked with my ISP and all setting are correct
    Which setting do you think maybe the problem ?
  • MarkMark Vanilla Staff
    Specifically, I was thinking about SMTP address, SMTP port, SMTP username, and SMTP password.

    If the connection timed out to the smtp server (as the error describes), those are the first things I'd check. Failing that, I'd try to see if there was a firewall issue connecting to the smtp server between your server and the smtp server.
  • How do I change the SMTP port setting on the script ? when I login as admin there is no where to change this, only the SMTP address, username and password

    I've got my head buried in Vanilla 2, so forgive me if I get this wrong, but I think you can specify the port just by appending ":port_number" to the host name.
