Trouble with SMF and email sending
« on: July 26, 2008, 04:33:06 AM »
my login is - motor37
  I have installed SMF (simple machines) forum http://motorace.by/forum/
  And I have trouble with e-mail on the forum
  forum must send me a notification about personal messages from forum and new answers on my topics. But it doesn't work.
  It worked on my old hosting, but doesn't work on yours.
(I have a setting - notify me about personal messages - always ON so it's not a newbie question)

  this forum have the next settings for mail:

  type of mail server:  2 choices - php o smtp
  both variants doesn't work

  could you help me?

How many emails are you trying to send at once? SMF version 1 doesn't attempt to throttle email sends, and can easily exceed the caps of 20 per minute and 500 per hour. SMF 2 will have email send rate throttling, but isn't out yet (still beta).

If that's not the problem/solution, take a look at how you have the email set up. Does it match what you're using for any email accounts on your site (sending via SMTP)? Maybe you missed some setting when installing your SMF.

Not me. SMF try to send 1 e-mail. But doesn't work any way. So the problem not in sending massive amount of e-mails.

Settings for email sending:

Type of mail server: (default PHP)

And it doesn't work. I send a ticket to support. But they told that they don't answers on questions like this. And told to ask on forums.

Please help.

Up. SMF support told that it's a hosting issue. Support of lunarpages don't reply and sent me to the forum.

I found a reason - the IP of lunarpages.com hosting is blacklisted by mail sites. I think because of spammers. I wrote to support again with this issue, hope they will fix it.

Everything is fine with SMF settings.

So, for everyone having trouble wth e-mail, lunarpages.com is in blacklist. That's why e-mails are not delivered

More specifically, many of LP's shared servers are blacklisted (by their IP addresses) due to actual or (more often) perceived spamming. Once one user on a shared server is blacklisted, everyone else on that server is in deep doo-doo because they all share the same email IP address. Whenever this happens, send a bounced email with full headers to abuse@lunarpages.com, and they will do what they can to get the server off the blacklist.
