    Default Email IP Address

    Hi

    How do I find out my Email IP address? It asks me for it when setting up the Email Component.

    Thanks for your help

    You have to ask your web host what the IP address of the mail severer you are on.

    Hi

    I have obtained the IP address from my host, but it still does not work. I have tried all sorts of combinations with SSL etc but still can't get it to send me the email. What is the port number about?

    My url is www.thecolchestercircle.co.uk

    I have used the same email in "email" box as the "from" box. Is this correct.

    Sorry, but I'm confused! any help would be great

    If you are talking about the formshandler you shouldn't change the default settings for server-ip-address and Port.
    Have a look at this image, it shows the normal settings ( in german, but you might get a clue by comparing with your english version).

    Hi

    Not sure if my reply worked last time, but anyway - I'll try again. I have tried your settings and the original settings (1.1.1.1, port 25). None of them work. I am looking to be able to create a form that sends me an email, along with an attachment. Do I have to set up the the settings to the right of the box, i.e. SMTP settings?

    Do I need to publish the "formhandler" bit? When I do, it says it cant find the formhandler.xml file. Perhaps this is the problem. If it can't find it, what can I do?

    Any further help would be great as I'm getting really frustrated!

    Thanks guys

    you can "try" either localhost of 127.0.0.1

    this will work if your host keeps the mail server on the same equipment that your domain is hosted on. If the mail server is on a different server it will have a different IP address

    EDIT: You can send yourself an email and look in the message headers. This will tell you where the message came from (the sending IP). Use that IP address

    Or if your host supports coldfusion you can use the <cfmail> tag. Processing forms to email takes less time in ColdFusion than it took me to answer this post
