Sending SMTP via Office365..?
« on: July 03, 2017, 11:47:49 AM »
Hi!

I'm new to AbanteCart, and so far, I am impressed and very grateful - it's amazing it's free.

I have a question: How do I configure the SMTP mail to work with Office365? According to Microsoft, I need to have the following:-

Server name: smtp.office365.com
Port: 587
Encryption method: STARTTLS

It's the STARTTLS  that's confounding me - How do I get AbanteCart to comply with that protocol?

I tried ssl://smtp.office365.com AND starttls:/smtp.office365.com - no joy.

:(

Any ideas?

you can ask your hosting provider about it. php just uses server openssl library.
