If you decided to use Google as your mail server and already set up it in a way like:
- Set the SMTP server name to smtp.gmail.com
- Set the username to your google email address
- Enter your password
- Set SMTP Port to 465
- Set SMTP Encryption to TLS
yet when I tried to send email I was receiving “internal server error ” msgs.
In the error log I see “Premature header…”
After spending hours on research I found that on your server you should have outgoing port 465 not blocked by the firewall.
It seems hostmonster is cleaning their servers again.
I have been hosting with them for 18 months with few issues. I also referred more then 10 clients to them. The last referral was just yesterday and today January 10th 2009… all I noticed that my web page was taken down without a single warning…
Contact them and asked for a reason. They said: you are using too much server resources. I told them I had this site up and running for the last 6 months without any change in script/visitors/database so what happened?
The referred me to the error log to check. One of the support suggested that I should delete empty databases. I told her you allow us to use 100 db in your plan why would my 33 databases be an issue even if it is empty??
The reinstated my site and I started working on the error log and scripts only 5 minutes later they just took down the whole site and killed my cpanel access. I had to beg to get back my data…
Moving on .. AVOID hostmonster if you are thinking of a website with more than 100 visitors a day. Once you go up bit with visitors they will take your site down.
