When following the directions for allowing HTML mail to send via SMTP, using these directions http://drupal.org/node/1200142 the option to choose STMP authentication does not show up as an option for mail(). I have SMTP module enabled and SMTP is enabled in the SMTP settings.

Perhaps this is best placed in SMTP support, but I thought I would start here.

thanks much!


Using the mail() function bypasses the Drupal API and is not supported.

Sorry but that does not make sense to me. According to the guide above I can set up HTML mail with SMTP using mailsystem module. in this step in those directions:

After installing your modules, visit the Mail System Settings page at admin/config/system/mailsystem and click on the New Class fieldset to show its options. Then select HTMLMailSystem for the format method, and SmtpMailSystem for the mail method, and click on the Save Settings button at the bottom.

What I'm saying is there is no option to select SMTP mail for the send method. Perhaps I'm missunderstanding you, but are you saying the above directions are invalid?

The MailSystemInterface::mail() method is different from the PHP mail() function. Follow the links and see for yourself.

this is happening to me too... :(
