    Not Telling
  1. its my own domain, and for certain reasons am bound from telling what it its. it is hosted on a shared hosting,the mail belongs to the same domain as is the mail server. it is not gmail. i am only looking on some elaborate information on what is meant by "authentication". if a mail server requires authentication, how does one do it?
  2. yes the from address is that which belongs to the SMTP server
  3. just to clarify myself mail.xyz.com...here i have the actual SMTP server..not xyz but i dont understand the authentication part!.....hmmmmmmmmmm! how do i differentiate or know if an smtp server needs or does not need authentication?
  4. Cags, thanks for the replies.however i am afraid i need some more spoon-feeding!..if anything more that can help me understand this better. thanks.
  5. now does this authentication come from: 1.the mail class setup 2.or something to do in the form script 3.or in php.ini and what kind of authentication would it be?...is it the password thats used to access vk@xyz.com inbox?
  6. can someone pls tell me why doesnt the below code work? i get an error: SMTP server response: 504 Authenticate first (#5.5.0) i have set the smtp server name in my php.ini ####################php.ini############# [mail function] ; For Win32 only.
