    Im using Godaddy linux web server and installed Wp in there. WP doesnt send passwords after registeration. If i choose password reminder for that user, that email i get just fine. Any ideas how to fix this?

    it could be that godaddy is restricting php generated emails
    maybe contact them

    if this is not the reason, than make a test wp install and see f that one works, if it does than you should reinstall your WP

    Try installing this plugin:

    New User Email Set Up

    You can set it up so that it email's the newly registered user their:

  4. user name
  5. email
  6. password
  7. and/or your:

  8. site url
  9. blog name
  10. login url
  11. Hope this helped.

    This plugin didn't work. It still didn't send the message. Anyone else not receiving e-mails with this plugin?

    I spent almost two days, solving this problem successfully. Above solution didn't work, I tried every possible solution including checking if php mail() is enabled or not or adding the int() to config.php, nthing worked. OK here is my solution:
    1- Install WP Mail SMTP from here
    2- Set a mail on your own server like info@mydomain.com
    3- in Plugin setting try to use SMTP instead of PHP mail
    4- my test on Gmail was unsuccessful, that's why I recommend you using your own mail
    5- any setting with SSL or TLS was unsuccessful, so I used “No encryption”.
    6- there are several available SMTP ports for me only 80 worked.

    Good luck

    Download this plug in and specify the SMTP host as relay-hosting.secureserver.net .

    I have got windows hosting with Godaddy and installed http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-mail-smtp/ plug-in as suggested. Test email still won't go through. I have my host set to: relay-hosting.secureserver.net
    and my username password which I am able to login with. Any help would be appreciated

    I posted an article on this issue in my blog. The instructions are for Windows hosting accounts, but I hope it helps:

    I was having same problem. There is nothing wrong with WordPress scripts nor with Contact Form Plugin. Its all with your localhost setting in C-panel.

    Its all due to MXentry setting problem in your website c-panel.
