Re: Email Notificaition Not Working
I have the same problem.
I’ve set up a smtp and a pop server on local, as Sam has done.
It means that I am able to send and receive e-mails using a virtual domain on my local server.
THE PROBLEM IS:
When I register a new user using the regular sign up form, I receive the check e-mail message, but no message is sent to my mail account.
I’VE TESTED the forgot your password WPMU function by using my admin account data to retrieve my e-mail and it works instead.
1) Sign Up message does not work.
2) Forgotten password message works correctly.
The way I’ve done it is by creating a virtual domain directed to 127.0.0.1; and using it also as pop and smtp server address. Messages are received via that address by a SMTP/POP3 server installed on my PC.
I can send e-mails using thunderbird (or any other e-mail client) without any problem.
All this mess is working under Windows Vista and LAMP.
