???


you would set up an email account on your server, just like any other email from your domain.
then, in SMF, you would set the webmaster email to that address

do you have a dedicated server? no? then do you have a hosting control panel... if so there should be an option in there to create an email address. if you cant find it ask your host how to do it. this is why you pay them the big bucks.

you're not helping yourself very much here... you are not actually providing any useful information to allow us to help you.

Have you set up a mailbox on your host?  (if not, then talk to your host about how to do that)

Have you configured your smf settings to use that mailbox?
What are your mail settings?

Um, "yeah" is not a setting... What did you actually set things to?
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.
