Site Activation and VM Confirmation E-mail issues.
« on: January 23, 2010, 21:49:35 pm »
I have 2 sites at same hosting company and on same domain.  
Both site using Joomla 1.5.9 with same mail setting
I've tested with or without SEO on.
Change between phpmail and sendmail.
Site A without VM 1.1.4, Site B had VM 1.1.4 installed.
Site A using phpmail setting works fine.
Site B is a copy of Site A, just added VM.
(I've tried on yahoo,, msn accounts)

Site A:
Using orginal Joomla user registration. New user can regist and recive Activation mail.

Site B:
Using Joomla orginal registration, new user do not appear at the backend.
Using VM registration form, user appear at the backend, but they don't recive activation mail.
Manually activate the new user (registed with VM registration form), buy products, after sending the order, do not recive any confirmation mail.

Using Admin account and change the new order status, the new user recived this status mail!
And this status mail is the only mail site B can send!

Wonder what went wrong, does anyone has same issue?

Thanks to anyone that can help!

ok... this is strange...
Site A using both phpmail and sendmail ok.

I've switched Site B to SMTP server, it's working now!
Didn't know why, but my problem was solved.

Now I need to find out, why MSN and my other domain reciving mails, not yahoo mail.

Thanks for reading.
