    My board (oakstead.org) is brand new, and only has about 10 users. There is simply not enough forum activity to prompt queued email to send out. Today, a new user signed up at 6:30. He did not receive his "activation email" until after I logged into the admincp - at 8:30. I'm afraid that new users will give up on the site before every receiving full registered user status.

    Is there any way to put any some subtle pressure on those responsible for a fix? My site is for a neighborhood, with a potential of 500+ users. Unfortunately, with such little start-up activity, this may prompt some to never come back.

    Thanks...

    Steve, could it be the GD-required image verification option that is causing this? I had mine on by default, but noticed that the image was not being displayed during registration. I suspect my host does not have or use GD. When I turned off the option, my email started to send immediately. Just curious.

    Ditto here...

    I have exactly the same symptoms. I'm sure I'm not the first to ask, but when is Beta 5 supposed to be released? Is there some sort of hack that can be done to fix this on our own?

    Thanks

    Accessing the forums is what triggers the emails:

    The problem still persists - I have increased the batch number to 10,000 and it continues.

    New users and test users do not get e-mail for many hours - indeed, it seems that when I log into the control panel it triggers the sending of those e-mails?

    If I reduce the batch to 1 it seems to work OK too but I don't know if its just because I am logged in to the control panel.

    I don't understand, because e-mail form this forum is sent immediately (i have tested the server end it send straight away and there are no plroblems on e-mail diagnostics.)

    Is there no solution to ensure the new user confirmation and other e-mails are sent instantly?

    Should I increase the batch size to 10000000000 ?

    Thanks

    Thanks Steve - Thats improved it quite a bit (but still a little slow and in reverse order - look forward to the fix).

    FEI the settings are at:

    Admin Control Panel >> Options >> vBulletin Options >> server settings and optimization options >> Number of e-mails to send per batch

    started a topic Email Problem - Delay in Sending

    Email Problem - Delay in Sending

    Email for new users is queing - so sometimes they don't get a confirmation for over an hour! (we are in test mode - no busy server)

    And then, it is sent in reverse order - first subscriber last

    I was told that there is a fix to enable the email to be sent immediately - but I have serached the entire board and cannot find it. Can someone please show me how to fix this.

    Thanks.
