Verification

We removed the previous quarantine system in version 22.01. You can now send verification links on register via email or SMS. Emails are sent with the popular software PHPMailer which is the current industry standard and is used by WordPress, Drupal, Joomla. SMS messages require a subscription to a paid service: ClickSend.com


Email Verification

To send out email messages you have to use an existing email (email address provided by your hosting provider). Turn on email verification - go to ACP » Settings » Verification and select via email from the drop-down menu. Enter SMTP host, SMTP user, SMTP password and EmailFrom email address and save with OKAY. Default SMTP port with encryption is 587.

Test email sending with PHPMailer

<?php

require_once('config.php');
require_once('incl/main.php');
neutral_dbconnect(); $settings=get_settings();
require_once('phpmailer.php');

echo send_smtp_mail('toUser@host.com','message subject','message body; timestamp: '.time(),1);

?>
