Email activation problems

Unread post by Saul »

We seem to be having issues with activation emails going out of the forum at the moment. Also, internal pm's are affected.

I think we can resolve the internal messages but the email thing has been going on for a few weeks with no solution in sight. Other forums are experiencing the same issues so I think this may be a phpbb thing.

I am working on a fix which hopefully will not be too far off.

I "think" we may have sorted the activation email issues for now.

If anyone is not receiving their activation emails etc please let me know?

I figure we can resolve the inner messages yet the email thing has been continuing for half a month with not a single answer for be found. Different gatherings are encountering similar issues so I figure this might be a phpbb thing.

The email activation issue has been resolved.

It is indeed an issue with phpbb although to be fair to the developers, it is not actually anything they have done. It is the huge number of sites using phpbb and the fact that a sizeable minority are either hacked and sending out spam emails or the owners themselves are sending out large numbers of email. This has resulted in services like Hotmail, blocking activation emails from a phpbb forum.

The only way around that is to use an external SMTP service. It is not free for a forum this size but I think the cost to benefit ratio is definitely in our favour :)
