Hi all. I'm pretty new to this, and we are just moving 2.9+ from a test server (in my office, Xubuntu) to a hosted environment. Everything seems good except that I'm having a mail authentication problem (it works fine on my test server). There are two parts to my question. If you can help solve the first, the answer to the second is optional.
I'm currently using the PHP mail interface to funnel mail through Google, not the server's mail service -- don't ask why, that would be another two paragraphs. I turn on email debugging under Development and try to send a test user a message, and get lots of PHP output. I mostly manage to keep up, and I see at least one message says "Unable to authenticate at this time", but before I can scroll to the bottom to see all the messages, or ponder what's going on, the debugging messages disappear and I go back to the original web page.
So (1) any ideas based on Google saying "unable to authenticate at this time"? Remember my SMTP messaging config works just fine on my test server. And (2) any ideas how to keep the PHP debug messages on screen for at least 15 seconds?
Thanks much ... Scott
