As many of you know, more and more web hosting companies are shutting down access to the PHP mail() function and instead requiring the use of authenticated SMTP from your scripts. Core PHP-Nuke, and therefore, RavenNuke as well, has traditionally made heavy use of the mail() function; even the forums and messaging features use mail() unless you configure your Forums to use SMTP through its separate administration tool.
PHPNukeMailer from Slaytanic has been an excellent compromise, using PHPMailer under the covers for the actual mailer and then putting an administration tool on top. I looked at NukeEvolution too and it was using Swift Mailer. After reviewing both mailers, I am convinced that Swift Mailer is much more robust. Therefore, since I liked the administration idea from PHPNukeMailer and the core mailer implementation of Swift Mailer, I decided to create Introducing TegoNuke(tm) Mailer, and combine the two ideas together.
I am building this solution for the upcoming RavenNuke 2.20.00 release. Once it is complete and well tested, I will most likely package it up as a separate download for the regular PHP-Nuke folks. Stay tuned...
Forgot to mention that although this will originally be released in PHP4 form, it will work also on PHP5. After the February PHP5 deadline, I will only package this up using the PHP5-only version of Swift Mailer. My intent is to use its more advanced features in support of the next version of the HTML Newsletter.

Lobo Links Web Directory is Open
floppy writes:Lobo Links is a new seo friendly web directory of internet resources. While the site is still brand new. I encourage submitters to get listed while the price is still very reasonably low. If you decide to list your site you should know that 75% of all listing commissions are put back into promoting the directory and in turn your listing will grow with the directory.
Submit your Link
I also created a phpnuke module to list the directory structure. A cool concept, but still in the beta stages.
I Have Opened My Own Blog - Montego Musings
Yeah, yeah, I know, pretty silly of me. I agree. But, after helping a family member with setting up her site and blog about a month back, I started to think if I should give it a try. After a lot of wrestling with the idea I just said to heck with it and went for it. Montego Musings is finally officially open! Come over and give me your thoughts. Debate, tease, poke fun, rant, or otherwise just tear me down however you wish. LOL. These are going to me MY stories and I am sticking to them... (can you hear the song already playing?).
EDITED: Sorry folks... blog domain has expired. Just wasn't up to writing...
Advertise with Montego Scripts
I will have to admit that it does not bring me great pleasure to have to do this because I know that folks do not like having ads stuffed in their faces, but I have no choice. Donations have never been that good (although numerous downloads and good support) and I have to do what I can to try and defray my server costs. Therefore, I have decided to start selling Advertisement space on this site. If interested, click on any of the "For Rent" banners or the Advertising module on the left-hand site menu to see all of the available ad placements and programs.
Clan Themes Affiliate System
floppy writes:Clan Themes is proud to introduce the Affiliate System. Earn 10% for each sale refer you deliver and get $10 for just signing up. Our average theme sale is $70 / £35 and affiliate payouts are only $30. You do the math. Like most affiliate systems we do not try to reel you in with impossible goals that can never be met.
Note: Refers are stored through sessions, cookies, and database entries. They are set to expire after 90 days. This gives you nearly 3 months to collect on a sale generated by one of your refers. In simple this means if a refer does not make a purchase on their first visit you can still collect for later purchases.
Go on Keep reading it gets better.
Assuming Care-and-Feeding of NSN GR Downloads
Bob Marion has graciously accepted my proposal to take over the day-to-day care-and-feeding of this wonderful NSN creation! I have been using this enhanced downloads module now for several years and have many ideas for new features. Raven has also graciously opened up a new Forum over at RavenPHPScripts for on-going support of the module. Please take some time to visit the forum to give your input on what new features you would like to see added to and/or enhanced within the module.
hitwalker.nl to phpnuke-database.com change
From today hitwalker.nl is officially changed to phpnuke-database.com. It is obvious that if you run a phpnuke-database that your domain name should indicate that as well. So today I made the changes.
Anyone that has links please change that to http://www.phpnuke-database.com
XHTML/W3C Compliance for Sommaire 2.1.1
Well, since RavenNuke76 2.10.00 is close to release and it has made large leaps forward in terms of XHTML and W3C compliance, AND I run RavenNuke76 here on this site, I have decided that in order to take advantage of all that hard work from the Team, I am needing to make Sommaire 2.1.1 (used here for the Site Menu) compliant among other blocks/modules.
I will begin this work soon and will release this to the public since Sommaire is no longer supported by its author.
