1and1 e-mail or contact form does not work
If you have a script on your website for outgoing e-mail for for a contact form, then you must check its functionality monthly, because 1and1 has a history of changing settings around without telling anyone.
In the last two years, the settings were changed three times, each time breaking my contact form, and outgoing e-mail from my website scripts.
Check that your script does NOT use the following settings:
This is a quote from one of the support techs (others are clueless about this change, and FAQs were not updated):
"If you're on shared hosting, we've blocked you from connecting directly to our SMTP servers. Use "mrelay.perfora.net" in place or use sendmail."
The following settings work for my CMS. I do not guarantee they are suitable for yours:
Mailer method: sendmail
SMTP host name: mrelay.perfora.net
Encryption mechanism: TLS
Port of SMTP server: 25
From address: firstname.lastname@example.org
From username: mydomainname.com
Sendmail location: /usr/sbin/sendmail
SMTP timeout: 1000
SMTP Authentication: ON
SMTP Authentication Username: name of my e-mail box account I have setup on my hosting
SMTP Authentication Password: password of my hosting account
