Well, the ususal questions: Did it work before, did subscriptions work ( new users)? What have you tried and what are the settings in the config.php?

No notifiers have ever worked..

When I sign up as a new user... I do not get any email from the site...


There are 3 mailing options.. I tried them all..

config.php:

PHP Formatted Code

   // SMTP parameters (only needed for 'backend' => 'smtp')
    'host'     => 'smtp.cubshub.com',
    'port'     => '25',
    'auth'     => true,
    'username' => 'blog@cubshub.com',
    'password' => '******'

SMTP is also my choice and usually dead sure. So are you sure that the settings are correct?

Sometimes (in my case) it is only e.g.:
'host' => 'example.com',
'username' => 'web333p1',

Maybe you ask your hoster again?

I had such problem. The bug was in the function COM_formatEmailAddress. Try to do this:
open lib-common.php (back it up)
find
PHP Formatted Code

function COM_formatEmailAddress( $name, $address )
{
    $formatted_name = $name;

    $formatted_name = str_replace( ':', '', $formatted_name );
    $formatted_name = str_replace( '"', '\\"', $formatted_name );

    if(( $name != $formatted_name ) ||
        ( strpos( $formatted_name, '.' ) !== false ))
    {
        $formatted_name = '"' . $formatted_name . '"';
    }

    return $formatted_name . ' <' . $address . '>';
    return $address;
}


 

replace with:
PHP Formatted Code

function COM_formatEmailAddress( $name, $address )
{
    /*$formatted_name = $name;

    $formatted_name = str_replace( ':', '', $formatted_name );
    $formatted_name = str_replace( '"', '\\"', $formatted_name );

    if(( $name != $formatted_name ) ||
        ( strpos( $formatted_name, '.' ) !== false ))
    {
        $formatted_name = '"' . $formatted_name . '"';
    }

    return $formatted_name . ' <' . $address . '>';*/

    return $address;
}


 

After this fix you'll receive letters, but without author's name.
Then, to know, who is wrote to you:
open profiles.php (back it up)
find:
PHP Formatted Code
            $from = COM_formatEmailAddress ($author, $authoremail);


 

next line replace with:
PHP Formatted Code
                        $message = $author . ' writes: ' . $message;


 

open admin/mail.php (back it up)
find:
PHP Formatted Code
$message = COM_stripslashes ($vars['message']);

 

next line replace with:
PHP Formatted Code
$message = $vars['fra'] . ', admin writes: ' . $message;

Spam filters? Try sending to an email address that doesn't have spam filters or lets you see the filtered emails.

If you really tried "every" option (including the fourth one listed in the FAQ?) and your hosting service can't see anything wrong either, then the problem must be on the receiving end.

bye, Dirk

It is not the receiving end as I subscribed to your site and also did not receive an email.

Indeed the fourth option may work or there must be something wrong either with the settings or the files are corrupted.

That would mean it is the recieving end.

Most emails generated from Geeklog do get filtered by spam filters.

None of my 36 users can receive emails, and it is the members side?

I highly doubt it.

we use hotmail, yahoo, gmail, and I use outlook with my "@cubshub.com" account and it still doesnt work....

Is there anyone here willing to help me out if i give access to look at the config file?

I am not the smartest when it comes to things like this..... any help would be great...

I sent you about 3 or 4 emails to blog@cubshub.com over the last days. You did not respond. Unfortunately you are not posting here not being registered.

Can't contact you!
