    I need to get phpbb working.
    it needs SMTP server information for it to begin to work.
    cPanel does not give this info' or it calls it something else?

    SMTP server is the mail server through which you are sending mails... You can create mail addresses through Cpanel, after that put the details in your forum configuration ............................ :)

    phpbb2 is asking for:
    SMTP Server Address
    SMTP Username
    Only enter a username if your SMTP server requires it
    SMTP Password
    Only enter a password if your SMTP server requires it

    Did you create an email account yet? If not, do so via the cPanel interface.

    Settings:
    Server: localhost
    SMTP username: email@domain.com
    SMTP password: the password for that account that you created.

    email@domain.com should be the full email address you created.
