path to sendmail

Post by chamster »

We recently migrated our shop to a different server. Now our emails from contact form are not coming through. Apparently the path to sendmail on the new server is supposed to be /usr/sbin/sendmail instead of just /bin/sendmail. But I don't know where this is set in Interspire. Can anybody enlighten me? Thanks!

You're much better off using SMTP settings for a specific email account you've setup on your server/hosting-account.

You can then setup ISC to use these settings in Admin CP > Settings > Store Settings.
Look for "Use SMTP Server"
Select "Let me specify my own SMTP server details"
Fill out the SMTP details as you would with your email client.

That should do it.
