    Would anybody know what the settings for the "secure" protocol is for a basic non-secure SMTP port 25 account would be? (Trying to replicate what is in a CTC to the SHAC - a basic user account for the ISP 'internode' is currently used where their smtp server is 'mail.internode.on.net', port 25, user details are the account holders loggin details. Trying port 465 and "sslv23" does not work.)

    Also, when using gmail to send notifications via the SHAC script the "from" field does nothing. Is this a gmail restriction not being able to set a different 'from' address?

    Hey, I dont know about the first question, but with the second, most major ISPs wont allow you to 'spoof' a different 'from' address when sending from an account, it is a common spam and phishing tactic so they lock the 'from' account to be the actual account.
