I know SuiteCRM doesn’t guarantee installation on shared hosting or on all configuration, but I am pretty good with Linux and I have always been able to make SugarCRM work, so I thought I would give SuiteCRM a change. I performed a clean install on a 1and1 shared hosting site and everything went smoothly until I tried to send SMTP emails. I ran into this problem with SugarCRM and was able to change the $mail method to ‘sendmail’ and everything worked fine. The SuiteCRM version seems to work slightly different.
- There is a separate dedicated sendTestEmal function that I was able to change to sendmail…that works fine.
- There is an outbound email function that is written differently than the test function and switching the method to sendmail did not fix the problem.
The result is that I have an installation that can send test emails but not the real thing. Can anyone help change over the phpmail method to sendmail?
