  • Email confirmation not working..

    Hey,

    whenever i turn on email confirmation 95% of the people dont confirm their emails.. So i figured let me test if it works and used hotmail,and other email accounts to register i always get confirmation email.. I emailed this guy on aol and asked if he got the confirmation email he said nope.. I am very confused..
    http://www.tsxclub.com can you guys register and see if you get email confirmation email..
    Thx to who ever helps me out on this i really need to fix this confirmation problems.

    Well, this may not be more of a solution than it is a workaround, but many of the people registering for my sites were not getting the confirmation email because of their ISP's spam protection, so I just turned off requiring email activation.

    I would ask them to look in their junkmail folders and see if it's in there, and if not, there could be problem with the sendmail function on your server. Have you mentioned the problem to your host to see if they know anything about it?

          I just signed up, haven't received an email yet (my email is usually fast, and the only spam blocker on it is just a tagger that assigns *****SPAM***** tags to each email)

          Mine's the one from @xibase.com

          Do you happen to have a catch-all email account set up on your domain? Perhaps you can check there and see if the emails are getting bounced back to it.

              I have over 700 AOL users on my messageboard and NONE of them can recieve emails from my site.

              No notifications, emails from the CP, etc etc

              Im assuming that it is because all email sent out says "STUNTLIFE MAILER"
              and AOL sees the Mailer as junk or spam mail.

              How do I change MAILER and see if that fixes it?

              PLEASE HELP!!!

                That's a server issue that's beyond the scope of vBulletin to change. You'll need to contact your web host about this.
