hello, I'm trying hard to make my OpenCart mail system function properly. I've tried PHP mail function, even add this extension = php_openssl.dll; to php.ini. I've tried to config with gmail apps SMTP but none email was sent. So, the last thing I need to try is to ask you guys how to see closed/opened ports on my VPS. Maybe it's what is mading my mail system not working on OpenCart

Have you installed a mail server?
PHP Mail function would not be sufficient to send email?
I dont know if this answer your question but actually I'm using Google Apps (ex.: Gmail for other domains)
So, the most I did was setting MX record, only.

Do I need to install one?! Like squirel and shi*?
Read through this tutorial to learn how to use Gmail or Yahoo with PHP mail() function.
No, soons as possible I'll get to read this link. I think this will be in less than 4 hours.
Thanks in advance
