    ok the head hosting admin at godaddy told me it is because my hosting account was Delux Hosting with ASP and it needed to be Delux Hosting with CGI so I am in the conversion process and it should be done in 72 hours I'll let you know if this works

    I guess what I am asking is what do I need to tell godaddy to do in order to get the e-mail functions working on my forums?

    they are telling me to make a cname of php and have the setting php.secureserver.net


    that didnt work

    They are dumb and I need to tell them what they need to do to there own server.

    No clue what it will and wont support for sure, all i know is that once in a while someone gets godaddy hosting and comes here with the same problems as you.

    I would look for another hosting company all together, that is not related or affilated with godaddy.

    It will, but it will most likely not support all of the features such as email.

    GoDaddy's php seems to eb crippled at best.

    You might want to look at finding antoher better host.

    I think I've said on another thread here, if not TAZ, you should never get your domain and hosting from the same company, period

    This error means that the server is not configured correclty for PHP email. You'll need to contact your host about this and ask them to fix this problem.

    hmm

    should it just work? do I need to contact my host and make sure something is enabled on my account? e-mail wise?

    I cant find a place with e-mail server options? Do I have to link this thing to an e-mail server?

    now what

    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.now what lol.......

    And could you share what the email diagnostics showed?

    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.
    You will need to view the mail logs on the server to see what happened to those emails that don't work. Once vB sends it to PHP it's in the hands of the server. If you are on a shared server you may need to ask your host to look through the logs for you.

    For what it's worth I get a lot of bounced emails from people who's mail boxes are full, 'unavailable' or over quota. This is a particular problem with hotmail and yahoo accounts. Unless you are on a dedicated server and can set where these bounce messages go, you will never see them. The mail logs will have a record of these though.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that many ISPs and mail clients are putting in very aggressive spam filters. It's possible these emails are being placed into a spam folder or are being filtered.

    hey, I'm having the same problem, and neither of those solutions helped. My server is not sending out any e-mails, so what should be done?
