Post Resend activation e-mail not working
I have problems with activation emails on our forum (http://drustvocf.forums-free.com/). Activation email never arrived to gmail account (forum username: test) - I checked also spam folder.
I also tried "Resend activation e-mail" and the email never arrived.

Hi uros,

Yes, I see that there is a problem. My test shows that emails work fine on other forums. So did you change anything in the Admin Control Panel?

Please go to:
ACP > Board Settings > User Registration Settings > Account Activation

and see if Account Activation is 'by user'. Also please check your logs for any errors and let me know.

Thanks, steve

Actually it is probably not related to Admin Control Panel settings. Please try again to see if the emails arrive now as I flushed the email queue.

Thanks, steve

Still not working ... I click "resend activating email" but email did not arrive.

I did not find new entries in error log

Thank you

The problem relates to gmail limiting messages from our server.

Please whitelist the following email, and all will be good (I hope):

nobody@host1.forums-free.com

Here is one way: http://www.labnol.org/internet/gmail-whitelist/19754/

Described solution is not acceptable. I can whitelist email nobody@host1.forums-free.com but this will work only for my gmail account but not for all others. Newly registered user (with gmail email) to our forum does not receive confirmation email from your site and cannot activate forum account.

Fair enough, looking at alternatives.

any alternatives? Our new members with gmail accounts cannot register for months.

Is there any option to get our forum database export. I will install private copy phpBB on our server.

I'm sorry, but that is not possible.
I haven't received e-mails about activity on this support forum either, so there's a problem with the mail server.
