SMTP = simple mail transfer protocol. Something that should allow me to send emails, hopefully
I have a node project that runs a web server that has a user login feature (mongo db). when a user makes a new account, I use ZURB (foundation for emails) templates to send email to the new account for comfirmaiton..
the email sent to the new 'account' has a temp generated uuid link for them to click for confirmation
I'd show you for reference, but hasstle.. Point is - node js can do emails easy!
@?????? so can PHP. Most server side languages probably can honestly.
yea, but i know he is familiar with node
Hopefully your ISP doesn't block port 25 (outgoing) as many do now, as an anti-spam measure.
Although, you can relay through your ISP using authentication, so it shouldn't be a real problem.
Well, thanks guys for your tips, although I'm not sure I'll use them well... I know very little about server related stuff, for example I don't even know the difference between a local web server and a server accessible through www.
Hit us up if you need any help along the way.
@Poryg Well, if you want to learn the difference read up on LANs, WANs, NAT (Network Address Translation) and port forwarding. Also www. is just a standard/generic subdomain. Not all websites use www.
