How does Auto e-mailer work (i.e. registration) (3 posts)

    I am running my own server on Windows 2000 (no choice), and the functions that provide automatic e-mails, such as the "register" function do not generate any e-mails to the users.

    The question is how does this function work? I would like to know what it is doing so I can troubleshoot my system. I found no references to the e-mailer in the Codex.

    Just to clarify:
    I am talking about the WordPress e-mailer functions used when a user registers or the "lost password" function, etc...

    When a user registers on my site, no e-mails are sent by WordPress.

    I am using Apache for my web server.

    When you setup PHP did you set the Win32 specific variables up?

    [mail function]
    ; For Win32 only.
    SMTP = smpt.youroutgoingmail.com
    smtp_port = 25

    ; For Win32 only.
    sendmail_from = outgoingemail@yourdomain.com

    Without these PHP isnt going to send a thing.
