I hope someone can help as this is driving me crazy! I have recently set up oscommerce using the automatic installer in cpanel on a free hosting account as I want to try out the software. Everything seems to work ok except for email, which I can not get to work no matter how hard I try. Ideally I would like to set up smtp to work with a gmail account, but getting things to work with an x10 email would also be ok. How do I set up an associated email so that the sendmail option in oscommerce works? Oscommerse is in a subdirectory on my site curiocorner.elementfx.com/shop Also how would I set up SMTP to work with a gmail address? I have been told something called php auth may be the answer, but after downloading and installing it as instructed oscommerce now has the extra email username and password fields to fill in, but when I test it by sending an email from contact us on the site, all it does is say waiting for elementfx.com, then the screen goes blank with a bit of script in the address bar of the browser ending in =SEND. I have also tried Presta Shop, but this stalls at the same point and returns a time out error. Some oscommerce experts I have contacted said it might be something being blocked by my host. As I'm currently on a free account I was wondering if that was the case. Obviously I want to get this working before considering commiting to a paid hosting plan. Any help would be much appreciated.
