New users are not getting verification email
I am running into the same problem. Does anyone have a possible solution or a plug-in that will fix this? My other wordpress sites on the same host work fine, so I am leaning toward a buddypress issue. Thanks in advance
Didn’t the latest buddypress update resolve this?
I am running version 18.104.22.168, which is the latest per this site. I deactivated all Buddypress plug-ins, then deactivated BuddyPress and the activation email gets sent. As soon as I activate BuddyPress again and attempt to create a new account, no e-mail is sent. Any help is greatly appreciated.
and if it helps, I am using Hostmonster for my site host
I am having the same problem. I don’t know if when it happened. 1.2.3 did not fixed the problem.
I checked several loggings but no error is generated. Really strange!
See this thread for possible plugins that can help you out with hosts that restrict mail sending.
I don’t think that’s the issue. However i am also not sure it is buddypress related, i did some more testing and found that creating a user from the backend does not send confirmation mails either. Private messaging within buddypress is working great however. So it is in my case NOT buddypress related.
@pdreissen Creating users from the backend doesn’t require activation, so there’s no need for an activation email.
Yes there is if i create it from WPMU, i need to check Skip Confirmation Email for this !
Right yes, I will do some debugging with WPMU.
fyi, i installed this plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/
When i used the standard php_mail option it does not work, if i use smtp mailing it works.
As mentioned before private messaging between users is sending out notifications without any problem (without plugin). Is there any difference between the mail functions here ?
No, no difference wp_mail() is used throughout BuddyPress.
I am at a dead end here. Installed the SMTP plugin, configured it for my hosts email settings, no luck. Configured it for gmail, as specified on the plugin site, still no luck….I am thinking of just giving up and running a different software package
Are you sure the emails are not going to a junk/spam folder?
I have almost 100!!! (yes 100) buddypress instalations and all work fine with activation.
Try to use this plugin if you have problems with sendmail on your host: “Cimy Swift SMTP” dont forget to put the plugin on mu-plugins and not on “plugins”.
Check also if you can send emails from a mail client with the email you setup on wordpress.
