Hi there,

for some reason the notifictaion emails have stopped.

V1.9.6.1 (Date: 3/18/2012).

I have tried using the email test in the upgrade panel it apears to send, but no email arrives.

I have tried testing the forum email address from Outlook and it sends & receives ok from the address.

It just seems to be YAF doesn't manage to send the mail, or it gets lost somehow.

I have tried restating the web site in IIS - but problem remains.

Please could you help me .. I am stuck.

Funny thing is - it did work - until recently.

Regards

Richard

Watcha, (you know when I say that I am saying hello - it's a london/sussex expression meaning hi there)

no there is no error using the install wizard.

However I played around with my mail.config settings and changed from:


<network host="mail.leansoftware.net" port="25" password="blabla" userName="bla@leansoftware.net" />

to


<network host="localhost" port="25" password="blabla" userName="bla" />

Changing the username from full email address to just the user name made the difference and now its works.

I can't explain why exactly this would allow the sending of email to extrnal addresses, but still maybe someone else can explain it.

FYI I am using Mail Enable for SMPT.

Best regards

Richard
