I've been having an ongoing email issue that I thought a migration and upgrade to 3.2 might solve. Unfortunately it hasn't, leaving me think that I just may not be fully aware of how phpbb functions.
I have my board set so that new registrations/accounts have to be activated by the admin (me). I should receive an email notification of a new registration that needs to be activated, right? I seem to recall getting those notifications and for some reason, they just stopped. A year ago I couldn't track down the issue, and I still can't seem to.
All other board emails work fine, i.e. users get notified that there account will be activated. The 'test' email I send from ACP comes though just fine. I can send bulk email to users through the ACP...no problem. Subscribers to topics/forums get notified via email. For all intents and purposes, email works fine on the board. It's just that I don't receive email notifications of new registrations needing approval. Consequently I have to 'stand by' and monitor new "Inactive Users" can limit my response time to students who are trying to get into the forum.
Email is not being routed into SPAM. Nor is there an error logged in the ACP that an email wasn't sent. I tried changing the email address too, just in case the one email address was being blocked...and still no email notification.
Same result using SMTP or php mail() function.
At a loss. Any suggestions on what I can try or where to look? Many thanks.
