smf not sending emails
« on: April 29, 2012, 08:21:11 PM »
its been a good while since i had to mess with the setting up of a server, but i recently changed vps companies and everything is coming together fine except for the fact that my forums and stuff cant send mail to users, etc.

what does smf need to send emails?

By default SMF sends emails using PHP send_mail, but it can use SMTP as well. This wiki post should help http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Why_are_members_not_getting_emails_sent_from_the_forum
