Failed sending email on sending a private message

Post by BiboBB »

Hi everyone
am having a strange problem lately, an error message just appears "Failed sending email" on sending a private message, I had some problems with the SMTP server earlier but they're now solved, the weird part is the rest mailing stuff around the forum works (new topic/reply notification for example)..
what could be the problem?..
TY..

Did you get an email error message in the error logs? Usually this will provide more detail on the specific error that occurred. ACP -> Maintenance -> Error logs

No error at all?

No. It could be any number of issues. Just because some emails work doesn't mean it's not an smtp issue.
Do you get this error message when sending all private messages to anyone, or only to specific user(s)? Can you post your current email settings?
