SMTP and VM 1.1.
« on: April 09, 2008, 21:57:33 pm »
At the last step of an order I get the following message and of course the transaction ends

Fatal error: Maximum execution time of 60 seconds exceeded in F:\xampp\htdocs\cool\libraries\phpmailer\smtp.php on line 361

I have
French language by default
Joomla 1.5.2
VM 1.1.0 RC2
Community Builder 1.1 (fitting with Joomla 1.5.2)
and  AEC (fitting with CB and Joomla)
I wish to use Paypal and I work with Paypal sandbox test mode = no and Sandbox  URL within HTML code

My tuning for emails Joomla works fine for subscription features  (CB, AEC)
I'm in localhost so I use (and I use the real mail server from my true domain
I'm trying to implement VM and it's the disaster.

May be VM 1.1. does not work with SMTP but only with Phpmail ??? (I have to try it)

Any idea ? Some extra datas needed to find out my problem.

In your local host setup do you have a SMTP server such as MercuryMail? If so then check the mail log file to see if the mail was sent. SMTP works fine for me on remote servers.

Please mention your VirtueMart, Joomla and PHP versions when asking a question in this forum

Currently using VM on Joomla 3.9.21 PHP 7.4.9

No I don't use Mercury mail.

I have some test users with their mailboxes defined on my true domain  (ie
I have created the corresponding accounts  on my local computer, I use Outlook Express
with and (Wanadoo is my FAI at home for ADSL, phone and so on).
All these mailboxes interact together I can send and receive mails.

And I have declared in joomla section system :
serveur SMTP
Identification SMTP Oui
mot de passe SMTP  "adhoc password"
hôte SMTP

It works fine with Joomla login, CB login, AEC login and I get all my mails on my Outlook Express mailboxes, but it does not work like this with VM 1.1
