I am getting the following error when I'm trying to send out the new password.
Below is the error message I recieved (I changed the actual domain name here).
PLease help!

Error sending mail: mail() [<a href='function.mail'>function.mail</a>]: Failed
to connect to mailserver at &quot;; port 25, verify your
&quot;SMTP&quot; and &quot;smtp_port&quot; setting in php.ini or use ini_set()

Have you done as the error message suggested?
Comment 2 DexPro 2005-05-09 18:00:06 UTC
Yes I did. Below is the extract from the php.ini file:

[mail function]
; For Win32 only.
smtp_port = 25

; For Win32 only.
sendmail_from =
Comment 3 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-05-09 18:01:15 UTC
Are you able to send mail using your own php scripts with that configuration?
Comment 4 DexPro 2005-05-09 18:04:04 UTC
Yes. Since I have Mantis installed on my system as well. And the system is able
to send out the emails from the Mantis system. But I also remeber that in Mantis
system there is a place where you can specify the username and the password. And
where as I do not see that anywhere in the wiki directory.
