[resolved] I do not receive mail notifications (3 posts)

    I set up the guestbook. It is working properly, except I do not receive a mail notification when a new post is made.

    I tried both sendmail and SMTP.

    I contacted my web host and confirmed that the settings appear to be correct. I also followed the instructions in the FAQ to send mail from an account set up on the host. This did not work either.

    I am using POWWEB

    Please advise.

    Hi ddman

    The mail notification is using the sender address dmsguestbook@YOURDOMAIN.tld.

    Some web hoster don't allow sending a mail from a none registered local part: (dmsguestbook)

    Be sure you have register the e-mail address dmsguestbook@YOURDOMAIN.tld on your powweb admin tool, if this is necessary.

    Otherwise open dmsguestbook.php with an editor, go to the line 840 and replace DMSGuestbook with a local part which works at this moment: $mail->From = "DMSGuestbook@".$host;

    Yes, mine wouldn't work either so...

    You need to add 'dmsguestbook@yourdomain.com' as an email address to your server. Then it worked fine and will send a confirmation note to the email address you stated in the 'Email Notification' section. ;)
