About OpenCart Mail function and openning ports (465, etc)

Posted November 29, 2013 5.2k views
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*?
