OJS 3.1.2-1 email settings


I have a question regarding the OJS 3.1.2-1 email settings. In the config.ini.php it says:

; Enable SMTP authentication
; Supported mechanisms: ssl, tls

In the past (previous version, OJS 2.x) used setting:

smtp_auth = PLAIN

After the upgrade the emails don’t work anymore. My question: Is setting PLAIN still possible with OJS 3.x or not anymore?

Hi @primozs,

Since OJS 3.x we started using the PHPMailerlibrary for mail delivery. The smtp_auth setting in config.inc.php maps directly to the SMTPSecure setting in PHPMailer. That setting currently only supports ssl and tls.
