    Activation emails not being sent/received so set up BP Disable Activation to at least get new members.

    This of course is leading to spam so tried adding CAPTCHA,it works on the comments section but not on the registration page.

    My first attempt at this so stumbling blindly along!

    Any ideas?

    @chiangmai let’s go back to the root of the problem and deactivate BP Disable Activation. Resolve email send/receive issue http://codex.buddypress.org/troubleshooting/frequently-asked-questions/

    Has already deactivated BP Disable activation.

    Tried both “mail from” and WP-Mail-SMTP, neither work now trying WP SMTP Config

    Any ideas why CAPTCHA does not work on “register” page?

    @chiangmai – It could be because it’s not compatible with BP, I’m not familiar with that plugin but not all WP plugins are compatible with the BP registration process.

    I’ve had success with Wanguard and asking a specific question. I’ve only had one spammer come through in the last month. I tried other CAPTCHA plugins before, and the CAPTCHA wouldn’t show in IE.

    Also, search through the forum for the activation email problem. It’s common and often times is related to your hosting provider or MX settings.

    I had switched my Hotmail.com email accounts to Outlook, switching back to Hotmail.com has resolved the problem.
