    where do i start.

    I run a server and all the customers on the server use Invision Power Board now ipb has a built in mass email system where you make an email then click send and ipb will send it to all of your members.

    Im just wondering is there anything that needs to be done server side for these emaisl to be sent out?

    Email setting in ipb and php mail and my email address @mydomain.com is the ingoing and outgoing email for all mail that goes through my website.

    its just not sending anymore, im just wondering if anyoen else has encountered this issue before and resolved it.

    thanks

    phil

    Ah yes. Since it's a PHP script, the sender "nobody" has to be enabled to send out mail.

    Make sure this option is unchecked, otherwise your box will block it.

    Wow, that's the problem 99.9% of the time. It could be a problem with the IPB script (maybe it auto-updated itself and changed some scripts.)

    If it is a not a free (or pirated) version of IPB, you can contact their technical support for help. They might say something like "run fixmailpipe.php and it will work."

    Maybe wait for some of the PHP/WHM gurus to come by.
