Hello,

We have a website that was working great with FoxContact for some time now. Recently the client asked to change the email protocol from PHP Mailer to SMTP. I've setup the credentials in Joomla's configuration and the test email was sent successfully but when I try to send from Fox Contact I'me getting the following error:
"Error while sending the email. Connection could not be established with host smtp.office365.com [php_network_getaddresses: getaddrinfo failed: Name or service not known #0]"

Please advice,

Guy.

Demis Palma, the author of the FoxContact package has dissapeared from the face of the earth.
He is also non-responsive on LinkedIn, no updates in his Facebook page either.

Your subscription payment is gracefully accepted, but you wil NOT get any support or new
version.

Personally I'm looking into Jevents but the free version is missing some feature I need.

Good luck finding an alternative.
Johan.
