edit: it seems to be an issue only in the discourse-doctor, thus title changed.
i am trying to figure out how to get the email to work so discourse can send mail to authorize users… I have successfully installed Discourse, but now when I want it to send emails (request new password for example), I discovered that email doesn’t work.
I have spend the last 2 days troubleshooting and I can’t think of anyhting else to try.
- I use my existing mailhost on my VPS server. (mydomain.com)
- I have created a new email account there for discourse (email@example.com)
- discourse is installed on a DO droplet, which is set up as a subdomain on my main domain. (discourse.mydomain.com)
when I use discourse doctor I get this error when I try to send mail
503 AUTH command used when not advertised
What does that mean? what do I have to change?
here are the settings from app.yml
I hope anyone can shed some light on it, my eternal gratitude is yours
