|Email settings: $wgSMTP|
|For using a direct (authenticated) SMTP server connection.
|Introduced in version:||1.2.0|
|Removed in version:||still in use|
|Allowed values:||(see below)|
For using a direct (authenticated) SMTP server connection, you need to fill an array with details about your connection. Set to false (the default value) to use the built-in PHP mail() function.
$wgSMTP = array( 'host' => "mail.example.com", // could also be an IP address. Where the SMTP server is located 'IDHost' => "example.com", // Generally this will be the domain name of your website (aka mywiki.org) 'port' => 25, // Port to use when connecting to the SMTP server 'auth' => true, // Should we use SMTP authentication (true or false) 'username' => "my_user_name", // Username to use for SMTP authentication (if being used) 'password' => "my_password" // Password to use for SMTP authentication (if being used) );
'IDHost' is a MediaWiki-specific setting used to build the Message-ID email header (see RFC 2822, sec 3.6.4 for more information on a properly formatted Message-ID). For the remaining settings, see Mail::factory() for a more complete description. (Scroll down to the
Warning: This setting requires PEAR's Mail package to be installed (run
pear install MAIL Net_SMTP, and you can run "pear list" to confirm). If you get an error message stating that pear is not installed, then install
php-pear and then try again.

$wgSMTP = array( 'host' => "outlook.corporatedomain.com", 'IDHost' => "corporatationname.com", 'port' => 25, 'auth' => false, 'username' => "firstname.lastname@example.org", 'password' => "pw1245" );
Error sending mail: Unknown error in PHP's mail() function Mediawiki
Warning: See possible issues in Task T32260.
As a possible workaround, put the following into LocalSettings.php, making the necessary substitutions for yourEmailAccount and yourEmailPassword:
$wgSMTP = array( 'host' => 'ssl://smtp.gmail.com', 'IDHost' => 'gmail.com', 'port' => 465, 'username' => 'yourEmailAccount@gmail.com', 'password' => 'yourEmailPassword', 'auth' => true );
Then install the packages required to send the mail.
$ sudo pear install mail $ sudo pear install net_smtp
After this you may get an authentication failure type error. You will need to sign into the gmail account you are using and verify that the person that just signed in is you. You only need to verify this one time. (gmail will send you an email and you just follow the instructions)
