Email contact form not sending and gives an error Zend Framework 2

I have inherited a website for a client which was built using zend framework 2. I have figured out how to move it to my host which is great however one issue remains and that is the email contact form. When sending an email via the contact form i get the following error. I suspect its a config area but having not used this system before i wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction of fixing this error.

Website

contact form page

Cheers

Update 19-MAR-17

I found the config here:

/vendor/acelaya/zf2-acmailer/config

There 2 files there

module.config.php & mail.global.php.dist

The mail.global.php.dist seems to have some config optoins which i tried but dont appear to help. I need to set it up to use the following imap settings:



Setting IMAP

Incoming Server imap.1and1.co.uk

Port with SSL enabled 993

Outgoing Server (SMTP) auth.smtp.1and1.co.uk

Outgoing port with TLS enabled 587

Outgoing server requires authentication

(user name and password)? Yes


Here is the file

Answer Source

In case anyone sees this and has the same issue the real problem was this:

wrong: 'mail_adapter' => 'Zend\Mail\Transport\smtp',

Correct: 'mail_adapter' => 'Zend\Mail\Transport\Sendmail',

1and1 uses sendmail instead of smtp.

For 1and1 you need these settings:

'server' => 'auth.smtp.1and1.co.uk',

'ssl' => 'tls',

'connection_class' => 'smtp',

'port' => 587,

The username is your email and the other settings speak for themselves.

Thanks again to Thomas for helping me in the right direction. I spent the best part of 4 days researching for this problem so i hope this finds anyone else who needs it.

Cheers
