[resolved] PHP problem -- comments being mailed? (3 posts)

    Hi all-

    My WordPress install is set up to send me an e-mail whenever a new comment is posted on a post; however, some services on my host server (including e-mail) went down this morning and when we brought them back up, this feature no longer worked. E-mail in general is working, but WordPress-generated messages don't go through.

    I am having a similar problem with automatically-generated e-mails from PHPBB on the same server, so I am assuming the problem is with PHP. However, my host doesn't really support PHP issues, so I need to figure out at least the outlines of the problem myself. Unfortunately, I'm kind of a dummy about it. Does anyone know what PHP modules WordPress uses for to generate its automatic mail messages? That would get me started, anyway. Thanks in advance!

    No modules. It uses the built in mail functions.
