Has anything changed since you set up the forum?Are you using PHP or SMTP?Has the postmaster e-mail address been changed? If you are using SMTP the webmaster address MUST be on the same domain. like www.myforum.com and the webmaster address must be [email protected].

Click the Core Configuration tab and look down the page.The Webmaster e-mail address must match your SMTP mail domain name (if you are using SMTP mail) so it should be something like [email protected]If you have your gmail address in there and you are using SMTP mail, it just won't work. If you don't have a webmaster address at all in there then no matter which mail system you use, it won't work.
