Recommended Posts

when anyone replies to a thread or receives a PM they used to get an email from admin@*****.com saying they had a response to their thread but that has stopped for some reason. What has happened?

If it's on your server, it may be a server related problem. Try to code a test script yourself and make it call the mail() function. If you get no emails whatsoever, contact your server admin.

If not, there may be a problem with your script. To test mail():

**********
1. Create a file called test.php (use Notepad)

2. Copy and paste the code below [be sure to set the correct email]

[code]<?php

mail('youremail@someplace.com', 'Testing php mail()', 'This is a test, blah blah blah');

?>[/code]

3. Save the file, upload it, and access it using the browser. (ie.: [a href=\"http://www.example.org/test.php)\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.example.org/test.php)[/a]

4. Check if you get any email after executing the script (check bulk folder too)

5. Try different emails, it may also be a problem with your email provider.

It's on my forum.
When anyone replys to a thread or gets a PM the "admin@*******.com sends them an email telling them of this. this is not happening now and I don't know why.

I havent done it as I'm not 100% where to upload it to. When I go into the forum provider page, then to mail set-up there is no accounts set-up.

So I go to: Auto-responder Maintenance


[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]
When configuring an autoresponder you can use the following tags to insert information into the message that is returned to the user:
%subject% The subject of the message that was sent to the autoresponder.
%from% The sender of the message that was sent to the autoresponder.
%email% The sender's email from the message that was sent to the autoresponder.
[/quote]


then set-up:
email: Admin@******.com
from: %from%
subject: %subject%

I thought if i created this with the tag '%' it should go to them when anyone responds to a thread they should get an email telling them of this.

Could it be the SMTP and port 25. I have heared that they somtimes get deleted, and if so how can I replace it?
