    hi there

    first of all please forgive me for duplicating topics. but in those which i found i didnt found answer

    when i put in theme mail() or wp_mail() for sending emails, it send it ok. but registration email with registration data isn't send :( any idea why? wher i can try to search reason?

    i register new user and afer this i don't have email with password in my inbox :(

  2. Mmight be a PHP limitaton at your host with sending mail via PHP. This has been recommended before: WP mail SMTP

    thank you for this suggestion. in moment i will check it, but are you sure that it is server limitation?

    as i wrote, when i put for example in footer of theme:

    <?php mail('addres@gmail.com', 'subject', 'content'); ?>

    it sends email when page is loaded. same with wp_mail()

  4. Don't know. I think WP sends registration email with a more complex PHP method that does get broken by some servers. Other threads in the forums suggest Wp Mail SMTP as a fix for registration emails not sending.

    Hello, songdogtech, and kkarpieszuk.
    I have that issue too. I've installed the WPMAIL SMTP and works fine, because now i receive an email every time new user registerd on my blog. But the users never get the mail with password.
    ┬┐Any idea? I saw register function in wp-login.php uses php POST method. So, how can i configure it to use SMTP?

    i fix it using same email on wp general options and wp-smtp with my domain. I mean, not hotmail or another free mail, just user@mydomain.com
    and works fine.
    thx anyway
