From the phpBB side the first thing you need to check is the ACP -> Maintenance -> Error log for any email errors. The other thing is whether you are using the queue or not, in the ACP -> E-mail settings page what is your value for 'package size' set to? Are all other board emails going out and it's just notifications you are having problems with?VPWanda wrote:I just can't figure out what might be wrong and would really appreciate someone giving me an idea of what to check!
Just to add, notifications on this board are working correctly, I received last night several notificatons of topics here. So there might be a issue on your side instead.VPWanda wrote:Thanks Paul.
I didn't get notified of your reply on this board either, even though I subscribed to the thread.
Is this notification problem common for phpbb boards?
I do get notications from this Dutch phpbb board, so it does seem to work for some.
Does anyone know anything about this?
I would really like some help, because it's really annoying when people on my board don't get notified when there's a responds to their message.
Wow. Thanks! That log is filled with email errors.narqelion wrote:the first thing you need to check is the ACP -> Maintenance -> Error log for any email errors.
Yep. I verified the fix for the bug Adam linked to on my linux test server, but not on Windows yet. Do you know if you are hosted on a Windows or *nix server? If you don't know post the url to your board I can tell.VPWanda wrote:Wow. Thanks!

I don't have the solution yet, but at least I know which direction to go now.
The error is:
"[phpBB Debug] PHP Notice: in file /includes/functions_messenger.php on line 691: mail(): Bad parameters to mail() function, mail not sent."
I'm going to check out that file and see if I can figure it out.
Really appreciate your help!
