[SOLVED] What, in the DB, could prevent email notifications of PMs being sent?
I couldn't get email notifications for PMs working, but thanks to @peregrine and this solution, all seemed good.
I was trying this on my cloned, test version of my live forum (on the same server.)
All good, so I made the same change on my live forum.
What I have tried
I set the the test site to point to the live db - no email.
I reset the test site to point to the BAK db - email.
I cloned my live site.
With the cloned site set to the live db - no emails.
Cloned site set to BAK db - emails sent.
I tried copying over the permissions and attributes for the relevant users from the BAKdb (which allows emails) into the livedb (that doesn't.)
I cloned the live db, and then exported GDN_Users from the BAK db (that sends emails) to the cloned live db (that doesn't.
If I point a cloned copy of my site to the BAK db, it sends email notifications.
If I use the live DB, it doesn't.
Something in the live DB is preventing the notifications from being sent.
However, I haven't a scooby what it might be.
Anyone got any suggestions?
