Need help configuring email to work with Mantis Bug Tracker

Last Modified: 2018-09-19
Need help configuring email to work with Mantis Bug Tracker. I have configured it according to the instructions provided by the vendor. I have attached a screenshot of the config_inc.php. All login info defined is correct. The issue is nothing happens. Nothing is triggering an email.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

If you are testing this online then open a ticket to your web hosting provider as it should work
