  • Emailing passwords to users

    When goto my admin page and try to send a user his password I get this error message:

    Warning: Server Error in D:\Inetpub\bandb\Forum\upload\member.php on line 166

    Please advise

      guess I left something out. I only get the error message when I try to send a password to someone on the outside of my firewall. However I have no problem sending messages so anyone via my exchange server.

        Then this is a server issue. You'll need to configure your mail server to allow email outside the firewall.

          Like I said, the mail server works fine. I have no problem sending and receiving mail, with the exception of the problem I am experiencing with VBulletin and sending passwords to users.

              Can vB send any other emails through your firewall?
