View Full Version : Reset Password Not Sending Email(NOT A BUG)
October 7th, 2005, 02:18 PM
Within the last 3 days the "reset password" option has stopped working on my PhotoPost. I have not done any changes to my site within that time frame. You can select reset password - but it does not send an email to the person requesting (either from the login page or the admin side)
Today I upgraded to the most recent version in hopes that might fix the problem, but it has not.
Any ideas what could be the problem?

Hello you would need to check with your host that they did not turn off php mail command
we use a simple php mail string to send out emails and this could be your issue

I have contacted my service provider - and they checked and tested PHP mail and said it is working properly

Well there is no issue with our program and mail that I see. emails work for me.
site url? I will try and register a name as see if I get an email
This issue is always server related if the mail is not recieved or the mail is in your trash bin.

I have sent an email to the address provided in your reply. My site requires password access - so I didn't want to post to the thread.
Thank you for your assistance

I have been round and round on this with my hosting provider Total Choice Hosting, and they insist they have made no changes - and then when they run the following test - that PHP mail is working.
But - the mail from my PhotoPost is still not working!
$to = 'firstname.lastname@example.org';
$subject = 'testing..';
$message = 'yo, whassup?';
$headers = "From: email@example.com" .
'X-Mailer: PHP/' . phpversion() . "rn" .
"MIME-Version: 1.0rn" .
"Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8rn" .
mail($to, $subject, $message, $headers);
I have set from header as " From: firstname.lastname@example.org "

In Global Options under admin email all you put is this email@example.com thats all you should have
Otherwise our mail string is as I pointed out in the program

Well - my host isn't admitting to changing anything - but for some reason this feature began working again today!
Thank you for your help
