SMTP Authentication (from 5.2)
In Movable Type 5.2, email notifications can now be sent using authenticated SMTP.
When using the SMTP Authentication feature, the following modules must be installed:
Necessary when using SSL via SMTP Authentication
Necessary when using TLS via SMTP Authentication
After installing Movable Type 5.2, please select "SMTP server" and check the [Use SMTP Auth] option on the Install Wizard's screen. Then fill in the following required fields for SMTP Authentication:
- SMTP Authentication user name
- SMTP Authentication password
- Specify authentication method (do not use SSL / use SSL / use STARTTLS)
Note: the selective options (do not use SSL / use SSL / use STARTTLS) will only appear if the necessary module has already been installed.
SMTP Authentication can also be enabled after installation. Simply modify the mt-config.cgi file and add the needed Configuration Directives. For more information, please see the related Configuration Directives document.
