  • What is the exact vBulletin application file which is used to send emails?

    Please advise the exact vBulletin application file which is used to send emails. Details below. Application useless without email.

    1. WHAT DOES VBULLETIN DIAGNOSTICS SAY?

    Admin - Import & Maintenance - Diagnositics - Email returns this error message:

    Help Pertinent PHP Settings
    SMTP: mail.tape.org
    sendmail_from: [email protected]
    sendmail_path: None

    Help Results
    The mailing function returned an error while trying to send the mail.
    Check your mail server to ensure it is configured correctly to allow PHP to send mail from it. You should also check your mail server's error log for more diagnostic information.

    2. WHAT DOES HOSTING SERVIE SAY?

    The PHP file which is used to send the emails in the vBulletin application has to be configured with the information we have given [DONE]. Please make a try now [FAILS] and if you still face the configuration error then please provide us with the exact vBulletin application file name which is used to send the emails.

    This is done by the vbmail function in functions.php.

    Note: vB uses PHP's mail() function for all its email and uses the SMTP server specified in php.ini. If PHP and the mail server are configured correctly then email will work.

      Update Stardate 12-31-2004 AM

      LIKES: Hosting Support has been able to get a couple "new user reg" messages released to come to me... spawning new users left and right...

      WISHES: Admin Diagnostics Email still says not right... and the emails that come are sporadic...

      SUSPICION: Something in the PHP setup has to be adjusted to let the email queue go (a guess)

      CURRENT EMOTIONS: Pleased something's being worked... Anxiety whether it will be stable... DEFINITELY want to know the definitive config solution as I want to use forums more...

      Thanks for your help to date and will keep you posted...

        Final...

        Closing this thread and thanks to vBulletin support!...

        Turns out can add set_ini lines at top of config.php and ignore them in functions.php and mail.php. They'll work in functions file but that adds a second customized file to remember. They don't do any good in mail file. SO... good learning.

        Good News: email functions working

        Mixed News: Admin Diagnostics still give error message... have posted that separately.
