  • Registration Verification Mails, going to Junk Folder. Need to change this ??

    Hello All,

    Its been a long discussion on this topic with everyone.,
    Still max of user Registrations, who use yahoo/hotmail accounts receive Forums Registration Verfication Emails in there Bulk mail / Junk Mail Folders only on there yahoo and hotmail accounts.

    I am unable to control this now, I had to delete around 29 users, since last 7 days, who were unable to verify those emails.

    I want to change foll. Details, for Users Awaiting Email Confirmation Group.

    When a mail is send to those users, it goes with the foll. details.

    From Name - XYZ Forums Mailer
    (I want to Change that, and just keep XYZ Forums)

    From Email Id - [email protected]

    Subject - Action Required to Activate Membership for XYZ Forums
    (I want to change that line, and keep it. XYZ MemberShip Confirmation)

    And also, when these Group users, get an error while replying to any of the threads, i want to display a message to them, that they need to confirm there registration by checking there emails. etc. etc. )
    please let me know where to change those above details.

    Regards,
    Sandy...

        Removing the Mailer header means editing the vbmail() function in the includes/functions.php file. As with all file edits I recommend you post on www.vbulletin.org, the official vB hacking site, for help.

          You can remove the 'Mailer' part of the from name by searching for:
          $mailfromname = "$vboptions[bbtitle] Mailer";
          in includes/functions.php and change it to:
          $mailfromname = $vboptions[bbtitle];

          The From address is what you entered in the VB configuration for Webmaster E-Mail Address.

          The subject line is under admin cp -> phraises -> phraise type: e-mail subject text -> activateaccount

          Hope this helps!

              hi liquidx,
              well nothing seems to have changed in terms of senders name
              I edit the file as recommended by you.
              Word mailer is still not removed :S
              and because of that it is still filtering the mails to "Bulk".
              please check attachment for more details.

                Hello Jake,

                i went to the link as suggested by you.
                this is the code written there

                Code:
                <!-- content table -->
                $spacer_open
                
                <br />
                
                <if condition="$bbuserinfo['usergroupid'] == 3">
                
                <div align="left" style="color: red; background-color: white; border: 1px solid black; padding:2px">Your account is awaiting email confirmation. Please click the activation link in the email you were sent, or visit <a href="register.php?$session[sessionurl]do=requestemail">this page</a> to resend the activation email. If you did not receive the email then it's possible it was blocked by your email client. In this case you can either disable your blocker software or enter a new email address in <a href="profile.php?$session[sessionurl]do=editpassword">your profile</a>.</div>
                
                </if>
                
                
                
                Code:
                %4$s
                phpinclude_output
                i guess, adding this link doesnt works ??
                those users are awaiting email activation.

                and when they follow. the above link they get an error message displayed below:

                HTML Code:
                username, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
                Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system? If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.
                what do u recommend ?
                or i am doing something wrong :S
                this is really very annoying/sad that still all emails are going to junk folders only on yahoo and hotmail

                thnx for help

                  Which link is causing the problem? If it's the profile link then go to your:

                  Admin CP -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager -> Users Awaiting Email Confirmation -> Edit Usergroup -> Can Edit Own Profile

                  Set this to Yes.

                    thnx that profile link for editing email id is fixed now.
                    but i dunt know why this new users dunt read the new message.
                    and stick to the awaiting mail confirmations group

                    still all mails only goto the junk mail folder on yahoo and hotmail domains.
