I just had to make a change to my own email server. On March 1 my ISP changed the outgoing SMTP port from 587 to 465.

Sounds like they changed the encryption method used. :)

 

 

I use Cox Communications, and they don't require encryption or authentication. In fact, they just use port 25. This works great for me, but only while on their service.

 I suspect they're simply consolidating port usage, so it's less confusing to customers. They used to use 465 or POP3 retrievals and 587 for outgoing SMTP (basically relaying). Now they're using 465 for both.

Do you have a SMTP server set up on the local machine? 
If not, then that won't work.

If you do, then it needs to be just "localhost".

I dont have one installed, In IIS I have an icon that says and I have added the following information: See Attached Photo,  I asume this is a SMTP Server?

 

And to confirm in my php.ini file i have the following information: 

 
[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
SMTP = smtp.btinternet.com
smtp_port = 25
 
; For Win32 only.
;sendmail_from = my bt email address

That's for IIS's use, and I don't beleive that will work with PHP, actually.

 

As for the config, yes, that looks correct.

 

Make sure you remove the ":" from infront of the "sendmail_from" part, as well.

And you can use any email there, but I recommend something "recognizable" (such as "no-reply@mydomain.remotewebaccess.com").

Ok I ve removed the ; from the send mail, Ok so what do I need to get this working? You mentioned a SMTP Server, have you any recommendations? How about IIS Manager?
