Do you face this thing with phpbb?

Discussion in 'phpBB' started by glitto, Sep 12, 2008.

    I recently made a new forum using phpbb software. I have set the "new registrations by Users" so that they will have to activate their account through the activation email the system automatically sends to them.

    But I have heard some complaints from some members and my friends that they didn't get any activation email? :confused:

    If such thing happens, as an administrator, what can I do? because I don't send the emails, it is the system that automatically send the emails?

    What should I do to solve this problem? Please guide me.

    Thanks

    its been a bit since i used phpbb but you will have to check your mail settings,you may be having issues with the php mail function sending out an email,you can try to set your own smtp server settings for email settings.

    That probably has more to do with your server than it does with phpBB.

    By default phpBb uses send mail to send email messages, for guaranteed sending of email address from your board use a SMTP :)

    It seems that your host doesn't allow to send mail using php mail function. Use SMTP authentication to send activation mail. It should fix your problem.
