    The problem with not supplying the solution :) doesn't help future readers of the thread.

    @listisimo
    Are you doing this on your own server? maybe you don't have a mailer setup?
    or you didn't set up smtp correctly. check these settings and put in the correct ones in your config.php

        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['UseSmtp']                    = FALSE;
        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['SmtpHost']                   = '';
        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['SmtpUser']                   = '';
        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['SmtpPassword']            = '';
        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['SmtpPort']                   = '25';
        $Configuration['Garden']['Email']['SmtpSecurity']   
    

    If changing the above - don't forget to report back.

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • Thanks for your help peregrine. The problem is more serious than I thought. The problem is I'm so far out of my depth I haven't a clue what I'm doing. How do I find a developer who knows all about Vanilla and can set it all up for me? Is there a place where one can request paid for service? I'm happy to pay.

  • I am also getting same problem, can somebody help me solve this problem ( Could not instantiate mail function.)... tell me how to solve this problem.

    Are you using an SMTP ?
