Hey guys, Sorry for the bother again, but I have yet another question that might need some answering. The problem is... I use google apps for my email needs, instead of the default cpanel email, so my mx records and all that are with Google. So now in email options I have set my default email as : email@example.com (this is a real email address, as in the one that I am using currently) and I have left the email sending as default. What this does is that it sends the email as firstname.lastname@example.org but it says "via" gator1579.hostgator.com (this is my host) .... So now what I am assuming is that, xenForo is trying to contact cpanel, and since it realizes that there is no actual email address as email@example.com (although there is, but its just attached with google apps) .... it sends the email through my host's mail server I think... which is this : gator1579.hostgator.com .... So then I tried SMTP...and since I use google apps, I followed this instruction here... https://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=13287 I took smtp.gmail.com and put it as the host, and left everything blank, and I didn't get any emails... Then I tried it with authentication, using my email address firstname.lastname@example.org and my password... I didn't get an email.. so I am now not sure how this works, or how to get rid of my host's name. Since I use SPF record and DKIM key, i'd rather have my domain name appear there and say sighed by my domain name instead of my hosters name and all.
