Emails | Forum

Hi Guys, Just started with Oxwall and excited so far about it's potential.

The system isn't sending emails... for example email verification emails or new user emails or any of the notification emails.

I have tried the following:

Cron: set up as shown in the picture and I am pretty sure this is correct using cPanel X.

SMTP servers, I tried with this enabled and disabled, the settings I put in tested without problems.

The system says 'Verification email successfully sent'

But if never arrives. (Have check Junk mail folders etc, and tried several addresses)

Did you contact your hosting company regarding the issue? Probably the problem is with your mail server.

I have been having the exact same issue with oxwall. I can go into my webmail as well as my email client, send email from both, and the emails get delivered instantly. 

My members are telling me they did not get the verification email after joining my oxwall site. 

That would tell me the issue isn't my server.

So you are saying that there are no emails at all are sent from your website? Do you receive any notifications? What about the ow_base_mail table? Is it empty? If it is, then the problem is definitely with the mail server. And if there are dozens of records in that table, that is a sign to check your Cron jobs functionality.
