  • We used to regularly receive emails from WordPress whenever there were Comments waiting for Approval. Since we upgraded to WP 3.6.1, we are no longer receiving email notifications from WordPress regarding Comments Pending for Approval.

    Now the only way for us to check whether there are any comments waiting for approval is to log in to our dashboard and view the Comments section.

    I have reviewed my Settings > Discussion and verified the following:

    E-mail me whenever:

    • Anyone posts a comment (checked)
    • A comment is held for moderation (checked)
    • Someone likes one of my posts (checked)

    Before a comment appears:

    • An administrator must always approve the comment (checked)

    Is this a bug in the version 3.6.1?

  • What version of WordPress did you upgrade from? There is a bug in the phpmailer class that will effect a small amount of users in a specific situation. (WP 3.6/3.6.1 and server Mail Transfer Agent is Qmail)

    Try the Check Email plugin and test whether you can end a plain email. The plugin will also tell you which MTA you are using.

    There was another user who reported not receiving email after upgrading to 3.6.1, but in his case, the mail was simply going to the spam filter for some reason.

    Hi Scriptrunner,

    I checked my spam filter and sure enough, there they were!

    Thanks for your help!
