Post subject: It's doing that smtp error thing again! What's up with that?

I've had several messages from different members asking about this, so I thought I'd make an announcement about it. The messages generally say something similar to what follows:

Hey TreeSprite, I get this error sometimes when I'm submitting a post, and I thought you might like to know. By the way, what's up with that? I thought it didn't post my message, so I clicked back and entered it again, and then when I looked at the topic again, I'd double posted! Here's the error I keep seeing:
Code:
Warning: fsockopen() [function.fsockopen]: php_hostconnect: connect failed in /usr/local/httpd-files/vhosts/treesprite.com/forums/includes/smtp.php on line 126

General Error
Could not connect to smtp host : 110 : Connection timed out

Unfortunately this is not an error I can do anything about. (Unless you'd like me to force the forum members to give up thread subscriptions that give forum updates via email?)

To explain the error, it's simply a matter of the main server upon which the forums are hosted not being able to send out the email as soon as you post a message to which someone has subscribed. The reasons for this error message being sent to you vary, the most common of which would be that it is already sending or receiving mail, and simply cannot execute your command right away because it's busy. You needn't worry about it though. Your postings are not affected by the error at all. Simply return to the forum index, or the topic you were reading and refresh the page to see your message. You do not need to post your message again, and doing so will result in a double posting.

Hope that eases the minds of those who have seen this error,
The Nymph

Here's another one. For some reason I can't veiw polls:

SQL Error : 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax. Check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 4

This one is simple! No fix needed. Non member users are not allowed to participate in polls. Mr. Green For some reason your page views are not refreshing to properly reflect this fact when you log out.
