Verification email not being sent

I have installed User Registratopn Solution Pack and I do not receive an email in order to verify my registration. Everything else up to that point appears to work and look very good.

I am still in testing mode so only have three people registered in the database. I can see all the user details, password and the verification code needed complete his process but none of them have ever receive an email!

I have tried a blank entry for $WAGLOBAL_Email_Server = "" ;

Or $WAGLOBAL_Email_Server = "" ;

The full WA_Globals.php file is as follows:
$WAGLOBAL_Root_URL = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Width = "300" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Height = "60" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Characters = "5" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Font = "Fonts/MOM_T___.TTF" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_BG = "ffffff" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Noise = "000000" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_Text = "000000" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Captcha_BG_transparent = "0" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Email_Server = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Verification_Email_Subject = "Email Verification" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Verification_Email_FROM = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Verification_Email_CC = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Verification_Email_BCC = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Registration_Email_Subject = "Welcome to our site" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Registration_Email_FROM = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Registration_Email_CC = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Registration_Email_BCC = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Password_Email_Subject = "Your password" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Password_Email_FROM = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Password_Email_CC = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Password_Email_BCC = "" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Admin_UserName = "??????" ;
$WAGLOBAL_Admin_Password = "??????" ;
Please note, the admin user name and password have been disguised, the email address sends and receives emails in outlook as expected.

You can go to users_Registration.php and I am happy for you to register and test.

Any help would be very greatfully accepted.

Regards Mac

It looks like you are using fasthosts as you hosting provider?

I found the following on their site:

it looks like they have a couple of requirements to lock down the smtp server.

try adding:

<?php ini_set("sendmail_from"""); ?>

to line 1 of the registration page.

Then in the WA_UniversalEmail/mail_PHP.php file, find the following:

$mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader);

and change it to:

$mailObj = mail($mailTo,$mailSubject,$mailContent,$mailHeader, "");

Jason - Fantastic - Exactly right and works like a dream! Great speedy support!

Oh by the way, I will be adding Contact Form Solution Pack to this website once I have finalised this URSP as well, I assume I will need to make similar changes there as well?

Thanks in advance - Mac

yes, you will need to upload the contact form solution pack to a unique folder on your site.

You will need to add the same ini set line to the top of the contact page, and make the same modification to the mail_PHP.php page.

OK I have made a note and will keep the unique folder requirement in mind.

Once again, thanks for a speedy response, have a nice weekend.
