Activation Email Not Sent?

    OK, I thought I had this fixed from before but apparently not.

    I did a test signup and the activation email was never sent out. So I activated the account. After doing so I instantly received an email saying my account was now setup.

    Any idea why I would not receive the first email but receive the second one?

    I am using the “mailFrom” plugin which I thought fixed the issue of wp or bp not sending out emails to certain addresses?

    Also check to make sure that whatever email you are using in your Mail From plugin actually exists. Otherwise, there are often issues there.

    I have it setup with a gmail account, is that not good?

    I have my own server, I heard this issue is related to my server not being setup correctly to send mail? If I had more details I may be able to fix it there.

    I don’t think it will work with a gmail account (at least without a major hack). It probably has to be somenameofanysort@yourdomain.com Then, you have to make sure that email is setup on your hosting.

    hmmm, I don’t have email setup on my server. I have no experience with servers but have managed to learn enough to have my site up. I thought the point of mailFrom was to address the problem off servers not being configured correctly to send mail through WP?
