E-Mail Notification Not Working

edited November 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi, Our vanilla messageboard is working great, except emails are not being sent when a comment has been add to a discussion. I'm assuming than an email is sent to the administrator everytime a comment is added. Other sites on the same server are working fine. Can anyone think of something i should check with this? Thanks --Mark

    Are you talking about using the notify extension?

    Yes.

    I've a feeling there are a lot of mixed reports on that one. For some people it seems to work fine but a lot of others have no joy whatsoever. I'd suggest you look for other notify related discussions on here and see if you can draw any luck.

    It has something to do with your SMTP host and other settings.

    Mine won't work with my actual host's settings but does work with my Gmail settings: smtp.gmail.com:465

    Go figure.

    I don't agree.

    When I hard code the settings.php page to notify all, it sends fine, everytime. No smtp, just the mail address enetered in application settings.

    So, the mailer function itself is ok.

    I see the issue as being that nothing is being added to the LUM_Notify table when someone subscribes to something. The entire table is blank- 0 rows.

    Surely this is the problem?

    Does anyone know where that part of the code is? Could it be a chmod thing maybe?

    Well those tables are there for me, maybe this is a secondary issue?

    Like I said...
    If I leave the settings empty, no worky, if I put in my host's settings, no worky, if I put in [smtp.gmail.com:465] all's well, somebody here in another discussion helped me with it.

    Hi Wanderer,

    Do you use a gmail email address too? or just the smtp details with another email a/c?

    I use a Gmail address too, I didn't think it would work with anything else?
