  • [Forum] Forum Registration / Email Problems

    The forum settings are configured to send an email notification about new members. This email is not being sent. Does this require any special settings other than configuration in the User Registration Options? Is use of an SMTP server required?

    Also, new users are not being sent a welcome email nor a verification email, so same questions apply to this issue...

    Are all other emails being sent OK (notification of PM, reply to subscribed thread etc)?
    Vote for:

    - *Admin Settable Paid Subscription Reminder Timeframe*
    *PM - Add ability to reply to originator only*
    - Add Admin ability to auto-subscribe users to specific channel(s)
    - "Quick Route" Interface...

      It appears that no emails are being sent out.

        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.

          I was getting test emails after setting up a new email account using my domain name. New users were then receiving verification emails, but after a long wait. I am not receiving any emails for posts made in subscribed theads. The emails are being marked in hotmail as being suspicious and when a user tries to click on the verification link in a verification email, an error 500 occurs.

          As such, and to hopefully speed up the email process and eliminate remaining issues I'm in the process of setting up an SMTP relay server to use with the account so I can enable SMTP support for the forums. I'll update further after the SMTP relay server has been setup, configured and tested.
