Patched Files provided by AcidBurn works great... all mail funcitons work.

I have noticed one thing. Sendmail is fast when sending mails. But, if I switch to SMTP with Username and Password provided (NOTE: ISP requires Username and Password) mail functions are slow and take time to send once you hit the send button. I do not know if this is a product of our ISP or phps mail function.

Same for me, except it's real slow when using the php/sendmail instead of using smtp.

I tried the phpbb_emailer_test2.zip (replaced all 3 files). (this was after trying the earlier emailer_tests which didn't work for bulk email).

This is on a very heavily modded board, which I updated from 2.0.4 to 2.0.5 (this implies I had to remod the new usercp_activate.php) and everything works.

With everything I mean:

Registration mail
users can email each other
group request mail
group approve mail (both for single approve and multiple approve)
bulk email
post notification (many users)
private message notification

My board is on lycos.nl (not using SMTP)

Just now I installed a fresh vanilla 2.0.5 (email didn't work), applied the same patches and everything works perfectly.

Great work by Acyd Burn, thx.
My board's not broken, it just went peculiar

sharing experience on fixing emailer.php problem

Post by I-S-S » Fri Jul 18, 2003 10:25 pm

I have read through all the messages posted in this forum and have tried everyone in order to fixed my emailer.php problem. However none one could really solve the problem.

So, I just simply try out the ways that I could think of. I use smtp and I filled the server colum with mail.xxxx.com ( which is my host provided mail server) and leave the username and password blank. I tried to fill the server with localhost but failed last time. So.. I hope this help. :)
