E-mails don't send

    Hi,

    Just installed XenForo and I'm having a problem with the confirmation e-mails.

    When I have it set to the default server, I get no errors in the server logs, but nobody gets any e-mails. It seems like they're just disappearing into the ether. The -f thing didn't seem to change anything

    When I set it to SMTP no matter what server I use (I have tried my webhosts and Google's) I get an error in the log that says that the connection timed out.

    Any suggestions what to try next?

    Thanks

    What settings on SMTP for google.
    My settings for SMTP are:
    smtp.gmail.com PORT 465
    username
    username@apple4me.net
    SSL for encryption

    And it seems to work. I really need to set it over to use postfix and see how that works since I'm on a dedi now.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Those are the settings I have in it for google. I am wondering if it's something on the server, like a php library that is disabled that should be enabled. I am using Network Solutions for my web host if that helps.

    Are you running on a VPS or shared hosting?

    Do they not have a mail server set up for your host already that you can relay through?
