Registration emails dont always go out....

Hi.

User activation.

we have nearly 700 members but I get a lot of people telling me they dont get the activation email, also some people dont get post reply notifications.

I am new to this and learning as I go. Does anyone have the time to explain in simple terms, what the email settings should be and what it means please? Big ask I know but Im looking not just for a fix but to understand it too.

The SMTP setting is disabled but I dont know what that means anyway.... :oops:

Any help or guidance would be very gratefully received

Ta

If some email is sent, your settings are fine.
