    Hi I cannot send e-mails using horde it gives me this error:

    There was an error sending your message: unable to connect to smtp server localhost:25

    But when sending with squirrel mail I have no problems any ideas?

    Thanks

    One of my clients is having the same issue. Anyone know of a fix? I'll be trying some things and let you know if I find a fix.

    Instead of letting scripts send SMTP mail, which is dangerous...

    I seem to have solved this...

    I edited /usr/local/cpanel/base/horde/config/conf.php

    Found: $conf['mailer']['type'] = 'smtp';

    and replaced it with: $conf['mailer']['type'] = 'sendmail';

    I've found that the Cpanel update sometimes causes this change to revert back to "smtp". Is there a way to keep the setting as "sendmail" or is there another issue that is causing this not to work with the "smtp" setting? I was thinking about just creating a cronjob to change it back to "sendmail" if the conf.php file gets changed? In the past 2 months, I've had this issue and have changed it back to reflect "sendmail" 2 or 3 times.

    Thanks,

    Keith
