Hi, Im all new and have a problem. When trying to set up email adress for recovery I get: “Invalid mail address”. What to do?

Strange. Have you configured your email-server settings in the "general" section?


#5

found the fix

https://central.owncloud.org/t/problem-on-setting-an-email-account-for-users-always-invalid/11932/11?u=dmitry

Just as a follow up - is your ownCloud on a hosted server?

Or are you using CPanel?

When I try setting up the server in the "admin general section I get

"You need to set your user email before being able to send test emails.

It is a hosted server I use

The files:
lib/private/Mail/Mailer.php
lib/private/Mail/Mail.php
Is not exsisting in my folder. Shall I just make the files manually?
