How do you send emails from here?

Post by kamaleon » Thu Nov 29, 2018 10:42 am

Hello,

How is this forum sending notifications to users?

Using an smtp server? Or how?

Just wondering what one might use when the forum gets bigger.

Thanks

phpbb has no control over how email is sent. this is all on the server side.
the host decides what type of email sending process it will provide and phpbb provides two possiblities. normal php mail and smtp.

the size of the board is usually not the problem it is how many emails are being sent. that could be thousands with a small board or only a few with a very large board.

basically, if your board is sending out enough emails to strain the server of your hosting company they will let you know and tell you how to solve it.


luck,

We are just using php's mail function for sending mails from within phpBB. However, keep in mind that we fully control our servers, including the mail server used to send to email, so this might not work for your board/hosting combination.
