registration email not being sent
« on: December 17, 2004, 12:01:41 pm »

I was testing registration with the current code before making some changes. I encountered some glitches.

On my local system, I got the confirmation message that the email was sent, but the emails never got to me. I checked in Outlook and finally using my webhost's webmail. I made sure that they weren't in the spam folder, which doesn't exist for the test email account since it has yet to receive spam. I tried using addresses from a couple of my subdomains and another domain that isn't mine.

I know my system can send emails because it can mail out ecards. Plus I just tested in v. 1.3.2, when I registered, I got the confirmation email.

I uploaded the same files to my webhost. I ended up getting the email, but encountered another issue which I will post in another thread.

Are you able to register for accounts and receive the activation emails?

At least it works on one system, but I'm stumped why it won't work in another. I would really like it to work locally since I will need to be testing new code.

Thanks.

I just realized that Norton Antivirus scans all my mails sent and received, even when sent through scripts. After registering with v. 1.3.2, the scanning icon pops up but not after 1.4.1. ??? So it's not getting sent at all.

I set up my CPG mail to go out through authenticated SMTP using my webhost settings.

Is this something that needs to be fixed or can we put it  down as invalid ?

heh, so now registration emails work on my local system but not on my webhost server. I guess it works so I'll mark it invalid.

Hi,

I'm having the same issue. I have tried http://coppermine.sourceforge.net/manual.php#smtp settings and put in

$CONFIG['smtp_host'] = 'localhost'; // also tried mail.domain.com and empty as well
$CONFIG['smtp_username'] = 'email@address.com';
$CONFIG['smtp_password'] = 'password';

when i try with the above information i get :

Could not connect to smtp host : 111 : Connection refused

** I have made sure that I am using the correct information to connect to localhost smtp.

when i try empty parameters i get a bounce back with the following header:

This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

MORE INFO>

my server blocks nobody@myserver.com user from sending out emails. but i think when using mailer.inc file of coppermine with a specific account then coppermine should not use nobody@myserver.com RIGHT ?

all of the admin confirmations for coppermine new user registration is working fine. I tried using the email account that I specified in mailer file by itself to send to rajivsharma@rogers.com and it worked.

Not sure what to do. Please help ???????

I just tried enabling 'nobody@myserver.com' to be able to send out email and that's the only time it workes.

so, regardless of what i put in my mailer.inc.php file 'coppermine is still using the user 'nobody@myserver.com' to send out email.

not sure if it's a bug.

I would like coppermine to work with email account that i specify in mailer.inc.php for sendin email and not 'nobody@myserver.com'.

by the way i'm using coppermine version 1.3.3

Any suggestions ?
