[Resolved] I’m having some trouble with the activation email not being sent.

    I’ve been working on this since yesterday and I think I’m a little closer and I’m 92% certain it’s not buddypress’s fault but I was hoping that someone here might have had a similar problem and may be able to help me.

    I installed it then tried to register with an alternative email. When I went to go check for the validation email, there wasn’t one. After a bit of looking around I saw that it was probably because I didn’t have an email setup so I installed the WP-Mail-SMTP plugin, after a bit of fiddling around I finally got it to accept my smtp settings, but then I get

    `["ErrorInfo"]=>
    string(187) “SMTP Error: The following recipients failed: address@gmailoryahoo.com
    SMTP server error: Verification failed for
    550-Unrouteable address
    550 Sender verify failed`

    I know that this isn’t buddypress’ fault but I’m just not sure what to do. My hosting is inmotionhosting.com, I set up an account in thunderbird that can send and receive email, but for some reason it seems that I can get this plugin to send my message, which I’m hoping to be the solution to sending activation emails. If I need to give more information please let me know. If you have an obvious fix or idea you think I’m overlooking please tell me. Buddypress looks amazing and it would be perfect for my site. Thank you for your time and, hopefully, responses.

    Never mind, one of the other posts around here said to try using the Mail From plugin but the context of the way it was used made me think that I was supposed to use it instead of WP-Mail-SMTP, but you’re actually supposed to use them together. I ended up figuring it out on my own.
