How to configure SMTP in XOOPS?

By default Xoops uses the phpmail function to send its emails. As more reliable method to send your website emails, we recommend using SMTP Authentication. To configure your Xoops SMTP settings go to your site admin area Preferences > System Options > Email Setup:

Email Settings

On the next page configure the following settings:

From Address – email address from which emails will be send. Make sure that the email account exists

From Name – the sender’s name that will appear in the recipient’s inbox

From user – your Xoops user that sends the message

Email Delivery Method – use SMTPAuth

SMTP Host –

SMTP user – [email protected] (email account that you have created via your cPanel -> Email Accouts

Password – password for the above user

Setup Button

Save the changes.

NOTE: The above example assumes that your emails are hosted with TMDHosting. If you are using a third party mail service provider, check with them for the SMTP settings for your email accounts.
