Regi8stration emails are not being sent

Post by Cliff Evans »

I have tried registering as a new user, and sending a test email. No emails are coming through at all. I am reasonably sure that everything is set correctly. Can any body please help.

Try registering test account with email address they provide here.

https://www.mail-tester.com/

That site will accept any email sent regardless of issues it may have. If they receive it they will analyze it. Email being sent and going into black hole is usually the result of bad reverse DNS, if that is listed you need to contact your host.

If they don't receive it then it's server side issue.

I guees I wasn't clear, Register an account on your phpBB forum using the email address they provide so they can analyze the activation email.

Ok, have done that, getting no results now. Just checking with my hosting provider.
