  • Forum E-mail Issue

    My forum does a test e-mail ok to all my users. If I go to the import/maintenance section and enter an e-mail address it throws me errors. Why?> What do I need to tell my host to acticate to make e-mail work?

    How do I check my forum to make sure its not on my end? The forum wont send out e-mails to my moderators either when a new post or thred is created. I did check the box in the options to allow this.
    I am on hold wih my host now (godaddy) sigh..... any information that I can tell them to fix this faster would be great!

    Hi, I had the exact same problem before. Take a look at the thread I made.

    As you can read in Steve Machol's post, the vB Mail will only work if the server is configured correctly.

    I changed host. If that's not an option for you you might try to speak to the support, they might be able to help you.

    Good Luck!

      Are you on the GoDaddy Deluxe plan or one of the cheaper ones? The cheaper plans have a number of PHP functions disabled which will affect this and other vB features.
