I have Installed NS's DNN open source install package. It installs DNN 5.6. Everything is fine, but I am having issues new users receiving their registration emails, and with modules sending emails to users/roles.

The Host SMTP setting defaults to "Localhost" Is this the correct setting? I called support and of course the person I got on the phone NEVER HEARD OF DNN!!! He said the SMTP entry should be: "smtp.mydomain.com". When I put that in, and click on the "test" button, I get an error, so that's not right.

Any help on what the Host SMTP setting should be?

Thanks

The SMTP server should be "localhost" for DNN or any ASP.Net application. The issue may be that the mail server is blocking the email. I would suggest having it send to a mailbox hosted on one of our mail servers to see if the server is actually sending the mail out.
