x10hosting supports many ways of sending emails to your users. However, some have restriction to prevent abuse.

[edit] Using x10Hosting's mail server

All mail sent through x10Hosting's mail server are subject to the following restrictions:

  • The "from" address must be an email address you created in cPanel.
  • There is a hourly/daily limit on the number of emails that you can send.

[edit] PHP's mail()

This function uses by default the sendmail program to send emails to it's recipients. You simply need to specify the recipient and add a email account defined in cPanel as the from address in the additional headers.

[edit] SMTP

Sending mail using SMTP typically requires using a third party library such as Pear::Mail* or PHPMailer*. The configuration is:

Mail Server Username: email name+your domain
Mail Server Password: email address password
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.your domain (server requires authentication) port 25
Outgoing Mail Server: (SSL) your server.x10hosting.com (server requires authentication) port 465
Supported Outgoing Mail Protocols: SMTP, SMTPS (SSL/TLS)
