Email me when anyone posts a comment - why doesn't it? (5 posts)

    Hello All,

    Under Settings > Discussion, I have the option checked: "Email me when anyone posts a comment". In my profile, my email address is correct. But I don't receive those emails. Can anyone help me figure out why?

    Thanks very much in advance,

    Patty Ayers

    you are seeing this for the same reason that you cannot go through the "lost password" process.

    Go here:

    put in admin, what do you see?

    Thank you "whooami" - here's what I see:

    The e-mail could not be sent.
    Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function...

    Thank you for the search as well, but I don't see anything related there. I guess I can ask my host. Maybe it needs to be an email address within the domain. ??

    Thank you for the search as well, but I don't see anything related there.

    Im sorry, but then you didnt look very well, since the search terms I used was the error you JUST copied into here, consequently nearly all of those threads are about that exact error.

    the url i poasted is broke in the forum; its the forum, not my paste. if you make the effort to copy the entire url into your browser, you get a whole lot of answers.
