test emails "sent", never received.

Post by PhilippeC99 »


2 days ago, I installed phpBB 3.1.9 through my supplier’s install, then updated it to 3.3.0, using the download from phpbb.com. Everything seemed perfect, until I tried the send test message, in email settings. Try as I could, the emails were apparently sent (said the board) but never received - whether sent through php or smtp (I tried a short mailing php program through my site's php, worked well) !

I checked everything I could think of, and gave up a few hours later. I thought it might be a problem of version, or of updating. So I deleted everything and tried again, with a new database and a new folder, and a fresh install with the phpBBcom download package phpbb-3.3.0_FR

Same problem !

Can you help ?

PHP version : 7.3.16

Error log : Email error
» EMAIL/PHP/mail()

See the template below :)

Many thanks
