Why will the News Letter not get sent out.. I made the news letter and tried at least 6 times to send, 6 times it failed..  The PM system works why not the news letter.

Dam they have play around with the forum for so many years, why can't they solve this one problem that is necessary..

I think there is still work being done on the mail in 2.1.

Been a long time working on it.. It must be a very intense coding for mail..

I'm not to sure. I did a search on GitHub for mail and it came up with a few hits so....

Make sure your mail settings are correct, try forcing the mail to be sent incase users have them actually turned off.

The settings must be correct, 1st. time I made the announcement I was closing the forum, and clicked to send, "nothing'..2nd. time I did this all over again and clicked send, and this time it went through.

Then after being asked by a few members to stay open, I decided to send out a notive, well I must have tried at least 6 times, each time "nothing'

I notice a check box to see even if members didn't want the news letter..sure hope they can get this fixed, I know a lot of forums use this feature.

I also know I'm on a Beta testing at the same time, so sometimes things are different.

Are you using RC2 or the latest build from github?

Is there anything on the forum's error log ?

Is there anything on the server side error log ?

SychO

Is there anything in the mail queue ?

2.1RC2 from the smf download.. I don't know much about github.

Don't see any errors on the server.

Would be great if you could ask your host if they know anything,

also what 'Mail type' are you using ?
and what happens when you try the 'Send Test' function under 'Mail' ?

we can't fix the issue if we don't have enough information to reproduce it.

I am using domain email, the email does work, I get emails for pm messages, I get emails for new registrations.

Test email works..You cannot see attachments on this board.

The newsletter never did go through.

I also wondering, if it is because the files still have coffeeti in them and database is still using the default email.

I ran the repair_setting and changed the forum name from one name to the other, along with the files.

SychO

What's your forum name ? Someone said that might be the issue

Ronald

Forum name is: seniorforums.ca

I have just contacted support to have the main name changed to seniorforums.ca

I have included a couple of screen shots for you to see what I meant when the directories and paths are still in the old forum name coffeeti.
