Drupal – Ubercart and SMTP Authentication Support

Finally i could use the Go Daddy email account as relay using the SMTP Authentication Support module in Drupal.

After so many trials and errors, i made the relay works but i couldn’t fully understand what’s going on in the setup.

So this time, no more Sendmail, i would like to use Postfix instead. Continue reading Postfix – Relay via Gmail
