E-mail password (7 posts)

    Whenever someone registers, they do not receive the password in their mail. When I set up a dummy and tried for a password reset I got this message:

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

    How do I enable the E-mail function? I do have the latest version of WP.

    You don't.
    Your host does. Or can :)

    Did your host disable the mail() function? You'd want to ask them that. :-)

    If they have indeed done so, you'll want to use one of the many plugins that'll help work around that.

    That's why HS has a + sign next to his name: he can put in nice sentences my "laconic" replies ;)

    To HandySolo (moderator+),

    I have looked at the plugins. Would you point me in the right direction? I am new to all this and have been to the help docs, around the forums and have looked at code after code until my head swims.

    I need help with this issue. We're running our own server, but I don't have a clue about configuring SMTP on it.
