  • Email Activation Problem

    Hello, i just set up my vBulletin on my server and i must say that its working like a charm exept for one minor thing. Whenever a new member signs up, they do not get an email. So i ran the Email Diagnostics through the AdminCP and this is the error i got :

    SMTP : localhost
    sendmail_from: None
    sendmail_path: None

    The mailing function returned an error while trying to send the mail.

    The following errors were outputted by PHP when attempting to send mail:
    Warning: mail(): "sendmail_from" not set in php.ini or custom "From:" header missing in *************\diagnostic.php on line 283


    so can anyone help me set up php to be able to send out emails? thanks

    You need to set the sendmail_path to either localhost, if you have setup an email server on your box, or a valid SMTP server.
