Hi,

I installed mediawiki on the sdcc project web, now I'm trying to configure the outbound e-mail as described in https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Project%20Web%20Email%20Configuration and http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Installing_MediaWiki_on_SourceForge.net#E-mail, but it doesn't work.

I added the following lines at the end of LocalSettings.php:

$wgSMTP = array(
 'host'     => "prwebmail", //could also be an IP address
 'IDHost'   => "sdcc",
 'port'     => 25,
 'auth'     => true,
 'username' => "sdcc",
 'password' => "<sdcc Project Web mail password>"
);

When I press the "Mail a confirmation code" button on the "Confirm e-mail address page" I get the following error message:

"SDCC wiki could not send your confirmation mail. Please check your e-mail address for invalid characters.
Mailer returned: Failed to send data [SMTP: Invalid response code received from server (code: 451, response: Temporary local problem - please try later)]"

I also tried the example php script on the "https://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/sourceforge/wiki/Project%20Web%20Email%20Configuration", but it dies complaining that Mail module is missing.
