  • Email Problem

    1. I had a parked site and am trying to get it going again,everything is working fine except the email.Nothing is been sent out,no email confirmation on registration,nothing when a PM is sent I even tired to request a email password reminder and nothing was sent.
    2. At first I taught it was problemem with my host but got this reply thimorningng.
    3. A test email has been sent to the stated address which has been delivered successfully to the configured mailbox. The issue appears to be script related as email traffic functions successfully.
    4. Anybody ever come across this or have any ideas..?

    vB uses the server for it's email. Assuming you have not disabled emails in the Admin CP or in config.php, then if there are problems the issue is either with the server itself or on the receiving end.

    Please see this page for help troubleshooting email problems:

      Your forum is installed at

      The real site is with an email address : [email protected].

      Your forum expected to send emails from the email address: [email protected] and it's not happening.

      Did you try to use SMTP for the emails?

      Just a thought...

      vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...
