I'm using version 1.9.1.8 (NET v2.0)

I did a clean install using go-daddy a few months ago.

Set myself as the admin.

Made my own avatars.

Added the logo to the top of the forum.

Changed the theme.

Then I started letting people know about the forum.

Now I'm receiving emails saying (I'm unable to register as a new member)

Thought it might be under Host Admin, Host Settings, Permissions Settings, Disable New Registrations: (I have this unchecked)

Is this correct?

I'm also getting emails from the 10 that did register saying (I can't post)

Here are my settings...

Is any of this correct?

Do you have "Validate Email" checked on your forum Host Settings?

Require Email Verification:

The box is unchecked.

I did see something.

Forum Settings

Forum Setup

SMTP Server Settings

SMTP Server:

SMTP User Name:

SMTP Password:

I don't have these setup. Would this be part of my problem?

Yes. SMTP server is required.

Host Settings

Forum Settings

Forum Email: forum@ikimaru.com

I set up this free email in my go-daddy account tonight and had them verify that it works.

Require Email Verification: is now checked.

SMTP Server Settings

SMTP Server: relay-hosting.secureserver.net

Godaddy said that this is correct.

SMTP User Name:

SMTP Password:

Godaddy said to leave user name and password blank, because it's not required.

I've tried to register a new member on my forum and it says an email has been sent.

Which is does'nt.

Then i noticed this:

Looks like you have a phpBB forum.

There is very little I can do since GoDaddy won't upgrade the forum (despite my repeated requests and emails) to the latest version -- v1.9.3. No one has any interest in supporting old versions of the forum here. We've all moved on and frankly don't have the time to support code that is out of date and doesn't work as well.

I've read that the newer version is better.

I'll also let Go-Daddy know that they need to get witht the program.
