  • vb's on new server using old server's SMTP

    i just recently moved a site using vbulletin to a new server and it seems to still be using the old server for email . . (sending mail great. . just using the wrong machine to do it) . . .

    i looked in the php.ini because i am aware that vb uses php's mail() function . . but the "sendmail_path =" was commented out. . on both machines. . . apparently this isnt being used in this installation of php . . .

    so my question is. . .

    if the default SMTP server is not specified in php.ini . . then how does vbulletin know where to send mail? especially when its using another server for this . . . .

    versions:
    • vbulletin: 2.29
    • php: 4.3.0

    vBulletin doesn't know where to send email, PHP does.

    Please upload a PHP file with this code in it and post the link:

    <?php

    phpinfo();

    ?>

        I haven't heard of that specific problem. Is this happening for all users? Any one user will only receive reply notifications? Have you tried confirming this problem with your email address?
