You forgot to remove the “#” character in front of the lines you changed. If you don’t, then they will be considered as comments and will not be taken into account.

Pros and cons of using Dreamhost v Mandrill (if someone already has a mail server at Dreamhost)?

DreamHost mail didn’t work. I use Zoho SMTP it works fine.
