How to set up contact page email?
« on: January 29, 2013, 10:13:44 pm »


I'm hardly web enthusiast and not a programmer, and I've set up basic sNews CMS powered business-card-style homepage, and would like to receive emails from page visitors through contact form, that is built in core of sNews. What additional configuration must be done aside from specifying website_email address in sNews configuration page? Isn't there any SMTP settings that must be specified, or is sNews using PHPmail function and no configuration is needed?

To clarify: page is running on shared hosting running cPanel, I've set up database for sNews (and it's running perfectly), and I've created mail account through cPanel, and it works (I can send and receive email to this account through webmail access panel).

Thanks for your patience.

Hi Artanis. Welcome to sNews!
To answer your question: no further setup or configuration is required. It's easy enough to test if it works as it should - just send yourself a test message through your contact form.
