i was wondering if someone could help me. I have not posted a question for a long time but this particular problem has been going on (for me) since WP 1.2.
Basically as far as i can remember i have never received an email when someone posts a comment on my site. Ok you may be thinking that no one posts any comments, but i assure you i have checked this !
i am currently running 1.5, i can confirmed that i have selected "email me when someone posts a comment". I have looked under the profile and confirmed my email address, ie the address where i want notifications to go to and i have looked under OPTIONS - GENERAL and confirmed the same email is there.
I suppose i need to understand how WP sends emails out - what smtp server does it use ? etc.
I run exchange 2003 at home and also have access to my isp's smtp/pop3 server if that helps?.
I dont mind downloading a plugin to get this working, i just want to be notified when someone posts a comment :)
Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for the support.
