Activation email problem…

  • geophray


    I have BuddyPress 1.2.8 installed and am having a hard time getting the user activation emails to send. I have tried installing the “Configure SMTP” plugin and can get it to work temporarily, but then I run into another problem. Our mail is run through google apps but there are daily sending limits on google apps/gmail, so the emails stop sending part way through the day.

    Is there a way for me to bypass our google apps and just have the notifications send directly from our website using SMTP? (PHPmail doesn’t seem to work.)

    Or if that won’t work, is there anything else I can do to get this to work without using our google apps account?

    Thank you in advance for your time on this.

  • I had a similar issue weeks ago and nearly gave up on BuddyPress because of it. Today I tried a fresh [1] install of BuddyPress 1.5.2 with WordPress 3.2.1. I did have to wait about five minutes, but the email did come through.

    Are you getting any error messages?
    Try to log in with the new username and see if you get the error “you need to activate your account” (not verbatim) (Update: The error reads, “Your account has not been activated. Check your email for the activation link” in WordPress, I’m sure the BuddyPress error message is very close)

    [1] I didn’t change any settings from their default expect (“Anyone can register”). The only other plugins that are activated are AutoChimp and JetPack, which shouldn’t have anything to do with this issue.

    Hang in there! BuddyPress is a young project. If you persist, I’m sure you’ll figure it out.
