Here is something I don't quite understand.
First of all, my site-wide email address configured on Site Information page is email@example.com.
Then, I use smtp module to send emails out from my site. I configure SMTP settings with my yahoo email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
I tries to send a test email out to my other gmail address email@example.com, but failed. Email can never be sent out in this situation.
Here is watchdog log details:
Type smtp Date Monday, September 22, 2014 - 11:29 User lyon Location http://localhost:8888/drupal-test/admin/config/system/smtp Referrer http://localhost:8888/drupal-test/admin/config/system/smtp Message Error sending e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com : The following From address failed: firstname.lastname@example.org SMTP server error: From address not verified - see http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/manage/sendfrom-07.html Severity error Hostname ::1 Operations
SMTP configuration didn't go wrong, because in the following two situations, email can be sent out well:
- configure site-wide email address to be the same one configured in SMTP settings: email@example.com.
- configure SMTP settings with a gmail address, then configuring site-wide email address to be any email address will work well. (People on Internet says Gmail can override it).
I don't want the SMTP configuration to be tied with Gmail account, it should support any mail host. How can I overcome this problem?
I appreciate your help.
