  • Email activation problem

    My members are not getting the "email activation" email sent to them. I ran Diagnostics on it and this is what it says
    "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"
    And my sendmail_from: is [email protected] witch don't look write.
    My webhost says its on my end. How can I fix this? Thanks

      My users arent recieving theirs either, however i dont get an error like his, I get this
      No errors were returned while attempting to send the email. Check [email protected] shortly to confirm you've received the email. If you don't receive the email, try sending the test to a different address. If that fails, check your mail server's configuration.
      But i dont recieve anything.....any ideas? Thanks.

        Try to manually enter a smtp server host, login, and password then try it. If you have SSH access to your server try echo testing | mail [email protected] from the command line.
