Hello,

I'm having some troubles setting up my email to work correctly.

So far, I am able to receive emails from the Contact Form but when a new users signs up, they do not receive their new account verification email.

In the web.config file, there is no place to put the email password but isn't this required?

This is the settings that my web host advised on their site: (support@lulwat.com is the email I want to use to send)

 

<mailSettings>
      <smtp from="support@lulwat.com" >
<network host="mail.softsyshosting.com" password="MyPasswordHere"
userName="support@lulwat.com" />
      </smtp>
</mailSettings>



Can anyone help?
My site is at www.lulwat.com if anyone wants to give some feedback on the design but I just got it running today so many things are not functioning yet.

blah, nevermind. The email system decidely to start working and I didn't even change anything.

It seems it is sending it from my admin email account which I never place in a password for?

I was under the impression that it would need a password in order to send email from your account? Is this not required?

Anyway, I would still love feedback on the site if anyone has any.
