This is what is happening, any ideas on how to fix ?
This is from the hosters....
Ok so i've taken a look and i believe i can see the issue, the emails are sending, but they are hitting our mail gateway and being blocked due to the spam score they are generating. If its over 2.0 it gets blocked, the rule breakdown for the emails are as follows:
The custom rule is something the software developers set and we do not have access to that information.
However this - 1.05 FROM_EXCESS_BASE64_2 From: base64 encoded unnecessarily - i believe that should be rectifiable by changing how the emails are encoded, but i'm not sure where the option/file that would need to be changed in phpbb is.
In your discussion with a phpbb member, can you ask how that could be rectified?
What happens if you turn SMTP off? Have you tried using an email address supplied via your hosting account with SMTP off such as email@example.com for example? [Note: Don't use 'admin@mydomain' in the new email address] Check, test and report back.
