    i have my wordpress set up to email comments. i have checked the settings and everything is in place, but the emails are not arriving (and yes, i checked the junk mail box).

    any idea why this might be happening?

    I don't get an email at all. WordPress will not send me emails, and I don't know what script it uses to send email, so i can't troubleshoot it.

    When I upgraded, I stopped receiving comment notification emails. When I searched I found this: http://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=20029#post-114084 and did the following:

    "Okay, I think I found the problem. I made the following changes to the /wp-includes/functions.php file:

    Change this line:
    return @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers, $more);

    to this:
    return @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);

    This cleared up my problem on WP 1.5."

    That fixed mine.

    Just to confirm, this solution worked for me, too.
    Quick and easy. Seems like, likely, a glitch.
    Thanks to the prior contributors.

    Be aware that some hosting providers will turn of mailing functions in PHP to prevent client spamming. Since WP uses these functions, this will disable comment notification.

    I'm using 1.5 (and have never used a previous version). I have scoured my /wp-includes/functions.php file and cannot find the following code:

    return @mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers, $more);

    For plugins, I've got Textile1, Owen Winkler's "Comment Quicktags" and Scriptygoddess' "Subscribe to Comments".
