Hi I am using the Mailing List module with Expression engine.

But i am unable to send email nor subscribe new members. When I tried mailing from the CP i get this error:

"Unable to send email using PHP mail(). Your server might not be configured to send mail using this method"

Hello,

The problem is most probably related to the From email address you are using. If you are using a From email address at gmail.com, you need configure ExpressionEngine to use the SMTP servers of Gmail. Alternatively, you can use an e-mail address you have created in your WebFaction control panel as a From address.

If you still experience any issues, please post a ticket from your WebFaction control panel, so that we can check the configuration of your account.

Thank-you. all working now. PS I used the webfaction email option. It looked like too much work to use gmail's SMTP option
