Problem sending PM with Newsletter feature
« on: September 16, 2008, 12:51:09 PM »
I think the title is clear, I have a problem with PM via Newsletter. The PM do not arrive but I get an absolutely empty mail (I think notifying the arrival of the invisible PM).

My installation is a 1.1.4 updated to a 2.0 Beta 3.1 Public.

Hope someone can point me the trick.

Thank you for your time.

I have checked the same feature on a fresh 2.0 install and it works... ¿maybe an error on the upgrade system?

Any errors in your error log? (Admin area > Error log)

How many members on your site?

You might try upgrading to 2.0b4 and see if this fixes the problem.

No error with the action in the error log... I will try to upgrade again and check it one more time.

I'll keep you informed

So I guess you mean sending a Newsletter using personal messages?

What is the contents you are putting into this PM?  So no PM arrives at all?  What are the groups you are sending it too?

Hi!

I'm trying to send news via PM, so I do the 2 steps to send them, and on the second one I check the "send via PM" option.

The text is just something like "message test" (but in spanish)

I'm sending the PM just to myself (for testing purposes... the objective is to make massive announcements this way)

The result is that I receive nothing at all, no mail (telling me that I have a PM) and no PM... nothing.

Any ideas?

PD: Thanks for your help and time

I'll have to test this on my own forum when I get a chance.  But have you updated to BETA 4, and see if they fixes your current issue?

I'm not "allowed" to do the upgrade for the moment, I'm trying to force it the soon as possible.

Let me know the result when you try it.

What do you mean not allowed?  The nature of the current BETA releases of 2.x means that many issues get resolved in next versions of the BETA release.  I'm sure a lot of bugs were fixed from 3.1 -> 4.

it means that the owner of the host / forum is stopping it... I will tell him that it's necessary and may solve the problem (but if no one have the same kind of problem... I'm not really optimist...)

Get you informed.

No, it remains un-solved today... any idea?

The upgrade still stopped due to hosting issues these days... fate against me!

Well, when your Host is ready for the Upgrade to kick off, upgrade to Beta 4 and let us know if that resolves your issue.

I just tried it on my 2.0 Beta 4 test board and it worked fine, so it may be an issue with Beta 3.1.
