    what are you putting in as your SMTP server? (this is the server that handles outgoing mail.)

    I would think you should use 'mailhost.yourdomain.com' or you may be able to use your ISPs SMTP - thats what I use.

    Does your SMTP server require authentication?

    Does your server allow relaying?

    Your url? So you used 'www.yourdomain.com' or did you use 'mailhost.yourdomain.com'?

    As has been said though, maybe find out from your ISP if you can use their SMTP server - its normally easier.

    You really shouldn't open SMTP on your server anyway, unless you've taken the necessary precautions (unless this is a shared account?).
