uniforum vbulletin smtp email setap problem with gmail or googlemail

Recommended Posts

i setup vbulletin in to my uniforum server and it is working super; but when any one get register or forum need to send email it say smtp problem on the server. I tried to setup smtp email function to my vbulletin. It was working with any email with default "port 25" but when i try to change the port it wasn't working. It took me 3 days to find out what was the problem and i find from the link below


ok this is what i did;

first download this files i am uploading to attachment (but if there is a problem with attach files' i will tell you the names) and you can get them link above from the ric.





go to "\Uniform Server\udrive\usr\local\php\extensions" folder and paste "php_openssl.dll" file.

and than go to "\Uniform Server\udrive\usr\local\php" folder and paste "libeay32.dll"&"ssleay32.dll" files.

ok now you need to open "php.ini" folder in "Uniform Server\udrive\usr\local\php" and search for this text ";extension=php_openssl.dll " and replace with "extension=php_openssl.dll " so it will activated. this sign means";" disable or ignor.

now restart your server and do the setup again from "vbulletin options/email options"

for googlemail or gmail (i tested both) you need

SMTP Host:smtp.gmail.com

SMTP Port:465

SMTP Username:myusername@gmail.com or myusername@googlemail.com (your username what ever it is)

SMTP Password: put your own password here

SMTP Secure Connection: must be yes.

and than save it

and go to

bottom of vbulletin page on the left

and click on "Maintenance" and select "Diagnostics"

so you can send a test mail and you can see it if its working

if you still have problem go to gmail or google mail settings in to your email select "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" sections and do this"1. Status: POP is enabled".

good luck

Hi cempriot,


Thanks for taking the time to post, I tried to move this to the original post but failed hence popped in a cross-link. :)
