      Description

      i am having trouble sending mail through SparkPost Email Delivery Service https://www.sparkpost.com/

      in ACP -> General tab -> Client communication -> E-mail settings.
      The Send a test email button is broken when using the SparkPost Email Delivery Service as SMTP info

      i tested the Send a test email button and i get a error in phpbb logs

      but if i use the Mass email or send mail by the users profile all emails works and have no email error log in phpbb so there is a bug with the The email test button.

      so I disabled the functionality that obscures private information from the logs and there it was. It looks like the acp/email page is feeding the value of the password field (which is ********) into $config. SparkPost is understandably miffed when it receives a bunch of asterisks instead of a real password and promptly refuses service. this only happens when using the Send a test email button

      some other ppl have the same prob : https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=556&t=2397786
