phpbb emails have stopped working


I've just noticed that emailing from within phpbb 2.08 has stopped working! Would the recent migration have anything to do with this?

FYI, my phpbb configuration is:

Use SMTP Server for email: Yes
SMTP Server Address: []
SMTP Username: <blank>
SMTP Password: <blank>

For example, when trying to do a mass email I get the following error:

Could not connect to smtp host : 10060 : A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
Please specify the mail server IP along with your email account details for SMTP authentication

If that doesn't work, please use localhost

I'm checking the issue out
Hi Yash,

How do I find out the server's IP address?

I tried using localhost and my email address and password for SMTP authentication but get the following error:

Ran into problems sending Mail. Response: 535 5.7.3 Authentication unsuccessful
for localhost, don't specify username/password. it simplies relays and requires no authentication

To use the mail server ( ensure you use smtp authentication with your account's username/password

I still get the original error message when using these new settings :(

You are getting the error with localhost also?
Have you ensure your SMTP authentication details are blank?
Sorry, it works with localhost - Many thanks.

Should the other settings be working though?
