Admin not notified of new members
« on: June 14, 2011, 09:57:24 AM »
I have registration set up for member approval. My email address is correct in server settings and admin is to be notified of new members. But no emails are coming. I have to log in as admin and see the members waiting there for approval. Any idea why I'm not getting an email? I used to the old smf forum I had. Thanks

Even though mine works, I dont always get notification emails when a member joins ... only 'sometimes'. Might depend on your mail servers condition when the email is sent (maybe dropped).  I dont know why this happens for sure.

I added a second email to send notifications to which seems more reliable  ::)

Where do you add a second email? Mine is under server settings, is there another place?

Just make another account and assign it admin.
