I am putting this in here once it has been confirmed working ill ask it to be moved.

I offer no support, enabling SMTP will be considered hacking, thus why it is here.

Thanks to Chris on the vB team for the help :0

I clicked "Send" in diagnostics after typing in my email address; the script have been executing for about a minute now and still no response. The IE logo is turning though; so it is definetly doing something...


Edit:
It gave me this:
SMTP: localhost
sendmail_from: None
sendmail_path: /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i


Fatal error: Call to undefined function: errormessage() in /home2/gogmia/public_html/forums/includes/mail.php on line 216


Line 214 to 217

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I'm guessing I still need to contact my host; thanks anyways for the great effort put in! This post is safe to be deleted.

Is it best to create a separate account for these purposes ?

Why not change this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

to this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and obviously add the password on the next line....
