View Full Version : Do I need to specify e-mail config in phpBB for admin...

So I need to specify my smtp e-mail info if I have enabled the feature for me to be notified when new users sign up on my forum? Right now if I try that I get a php error message. The user is still added to the database but I don't find out unless I check the user list. I get no notification.

Sorry I just noticed your post. You should not have to enter the smtp email info in order to be notified on new users. You would have to have valid email for the admin in the user file so double check that. The notification is sent to sendmail which then sends it on to your email address. Let me know if you are still haveing problems it could be there is another setting that is not right but can't think of what else would effect it off the top of my head.
