Need email confirmation for new article postings - Any help HUGELY appreciated! (3 posts)

    Hello all,

    I am using wordpress in conjuction with a class called World Poverty and Human Rights where students write articles(posts) on the site for class credit.

    The problem is, we really need a confirmation email to be sent to the student when they create a new post so they have a record/confirmation of it.

    I am currently using the Edit Flow plugin which allows an automated email to be sent to the person grading their article, but nothing is sent to the user to let them know they have successfully submitted an article.

    Is there any way to make this happen? Am I just retarded and missing a really obvious setting?

    Any and all advice/help massively appreciated - I have over 100 students that are depending on this.

    Thank you in advance,

    Thank you for the links 123milli, but my smtp setup is working fine. When wordpress decides to send out an email, it goes through just fine.

    The problem is, wordpress doesn't seem to attempt to send out an email in the first place to the user when they submit a new post.

    Does anyone know how to force WP to email a confirmation upon submitting a new post?

    Thank again for any help/advice!
