Question Email configuration

Hi All,

Recently downloaded Kunena to my company's local intranet running Joomla 2.5.6.

I've hit a snag with the mail function and was wondering if anyone can assist?

I've tried several mail settings within the global configuration, of which I know are correct. But, when users attempt to register I have to manually confirm them within Joomla and when users forget their password - Bad news! :( The email link doesn't work.

Have I missed a step in setup? I received the following messages... The following from address failed.. and Failed to send email. Is global configuration used to send emails for Kunena or is their something within the settings that i've missed?

Best Regards

David

G'day, David, and welcome to the Kunena community.

You certainly have your work cut out fir you. Diagnosing and fixing problems on a website hidden behind an intranet firewall is the worst kind of situation anyone can find themselves and you have our sympathy. The first - and most important - issue is to tell your intranet site administrator that J! 2.5.6 is unsupported by Joomla and was riddled with defects and is likely to be responsible for the issues that you're now facing.

When you've got the Joomla issue sorted out then, perhaps, we can return to the issue of site registration and sending email but, to be completely honest with you, I think this is more of a Joomla question than a question about Kunena. You may find better help by reading the category description that appears at the top of this page (just below the area where you login to the forum) or one if the sticky topics in this category. Good luck.
