Kunena 5.2.8 released and Blue eagle 1.6.7 released (02 Jan 2022)

The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.2.8 [K 5.2.8] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.10/3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.2 and issues discovered during the development stages of previous version of K5.2.

If you are using blue template you need to update to 1.6.7 version to ensure to have a compatible version with K5.2.8.

Important note: (07 Jan 2022) If you have created a Kunena custom.css, create a backup of it. Due to an error, this file will be deleted during an upgrade.

Question SMTP Change in Joomla Global Config - now subscribers don't get emails

1 month 2 weeks ago #1 by netamity
There are various references to mail issues here, none of which ever seem to have a resolution. Mine is specific. We switched yesterday from PHP Mail to SMTP and mail is being sent fine from all other components- but subscription alert emails in Kunena are not being sent.
I have a hunch this has to do with subscribers being sent as 'undisclosed-recipients' which a previous post from years ago ()  seemed to indicate but as usual, no resolution other than to abandon the subscriptions feature. The issue appears to be the SMTP host blocking 'undisclosed recipients' or perhaps placing a limit and stopping it if it exceeds it.
I'll get in touch with my host, but if anyone has specifically experience with SMTP and its related issues with subscription alert emails and has things that have worked, then please get in touch. My config below- i realise I'm not on the latest issue, but this seems to span multiple versions of Kunena, so unlikely to be a resolution.
