Do any e-mails work? Also, why are you using SMTP? Does the PHP mail() function not work?

What website? If something other than phpBB.com, that may be your problem.

*NOTE: Before proceeding backup all files and the database.*
  • Upload all new files from a download of the full version, EXCEPT for config.php, the /images and /files folders.
  • Go to yoursite.com/forumfolder/install/database_update.php
  • Let that run and then delete the install folder.
  • You now have a new up to date board containing all your users and posts but without any MODs that you might have had installed.

I suspect the host disabled the ability to send mail, not every host allow it by default.

There's a big sticky at the top of this form (Prevening Spam in phpBB3).

Users will only receive activation e-mails if account activation is set to "user". Otherwise, I believe they receive an e-mail stating that their account needs to be activated by an administrator (if account activation is set to "admin").
