    Hi, For some reason, no one is recieving any emails when a new thread is posted. It was working great about a week ago, but seems to not work anymore.

    Where do I check to make sure that my mail server IP is correct etc??

    I notice it happens more when there are multiple email addresses to send to when there is a new post.....

      First try this:

      Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Server Settings and Optimization Options -> Enable "-f" Parameter -> Yes

      Then try the vB email functions.

      If it still doesn't work, then this is either a server and/or mailbox issue.

      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.

      Are any vB emails working? If so, 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.
