I've the following configurations within the Joomla Global Configuration panel.

**Mail Configurations**

Mailer: SMTP Server

Mail from: email@mydomain.com

From Title: John Cruz

Sendmail Path:

SMTP Authentication: Yes

SMTP Security: SSL

SMTP Port: 465

SMTP Username: email@mydomain.com

SMTP Password: ******

SMTP Host: gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com

I'm running Joomla 1.5.14.

I've during my google applications domain both IMAP and POP enabled.

After I attempt to send a contact by having an article link by clicking the little envelope icon I recieve the following feedback. "The e-mail cold 't be send properly". The SMTP validation appears to operate because I don't have any SMTP error however the email isn't sent. Any idea could be really appreciated!

I've examined with SMTP Host as smtp.gmail.com with no success.

I've attempted with sendmail understood to be /usr/sbin/postfix but with no success.

Solution

Set sendmail road to the sendmail command or point sendmail to postfix for those who have postfix installed.

Set SMTP Host to smtp.gmail.com. I'd seem like:

I've Virtuemart 1.1.4 with Joomla! 1.5.15.

The configuration that actually works for me personally was (both for virtuemart and joomla contacts):
