SMTP Email Setup and Troubleshooting

CI 3.x

I have created a /config/email.php config file.

I have this set:
PHP Code:
$config['protocol'] = 'smtp';
// $config['mailpath'] = '/usr/sbin/sendmail';
$config['charset'] = 'iso-8859-1';
$config['wordwrap'] = TRUE;
$config['smtp_host'] = 'mail.jonespublishing.com';
$config['smtp_user'] = '<someuser>@jonespublishing.com';
$config['smtp_pass'] = '<pass>'

I'm at a loss how to troubleshoot this... as I don't have access to the mail.jonespublishing.com logs.  Relaying from this IP should be allowed.

No thoughts?

I'm using CPANEL and CI 3.x.

Depending on what I put in the config, and how I enact the config.. the two prominent errors are:
'Failed to send AUTH LOGIN'
'Unable to send email using PHP SMTP'

Note, if I change the protocol to mail or sendmail, debugger shows it successfully sends.. but I still never the email.

Very frustrating.

Latest Code:
PHP Code:
                                       $config = array(
                                           'protocol' => 'sendmail'// smtp, mail, sendmail
                                           'smtp_host' => 'mail.somedomain.com',
                                           'smtp_port' => 25,
                                           'smtp_user' => '[email protected]',
                                           'smtp_pass' => '*****',
                                           'mailtype'  => 'text',
                                           'charset'   => 'iso-8859-1',
                                           'crlf' => "\r\n",
                                           'smtp_keepalive' => TRUE,
                                           // 'smtp_crypto' => 'tls',
                                           // 'newline' => "\\r\\n",
                                           'wordrap' => TRUE

                                       $this->email->from('[email protected]''title');
                                       $this->email->subject('blah blah blah');
                                       $this->email->message('Testing the email class.');

                                       $vEresult $this->email->send(FALSE);
                                       echo $this->email->print_debugger(); 

Updating for the record.

The mail server in question was a locked down MAPI server, no listening SMTP. The solution was commenting out the SMTP auth and allowing the I.P. of the sending script to relay.
