Thanks for the hint, still the same problem after updating to  5.2.8  The debug error is: Could not instantiate mail function. BTW  Other than Kunena email notifications, all other emailing from the site work (Contacts, ChroneForms etc)

I don't understand explaining that BTW do you have a webshop or eg RSForm! Pro or other form extensions that the BTW  function used

Sorry for the ambiguity, what I am saying is that the problem is limited to Kunena email notifications, other emailing from the website such as ChronoForms or Contact forms continue to work, they continue sending emails while Kunena email notifications do not.

Kunena config is exactly the same as when the email notifications worked. I cannot think about any change to the site that would cause this problem, the last forum email notification was delivered on Wed, 2 Feb 2022 02:11:55 -0800 (PST)

I am repeating the error as provided by my host:

SMTP syntax error in "RCPT TO: [GGC Forum] <[email protected]>" H=() [127.0.0.1]:52596 I=[127.0.0.1]:25 missing or malformed local part (expected word or "<")
2022-02-08 11:26:57.198 [51155] H=() [127.0.0.1]:52596 I=[127.0.0.1]:25 incomplete transaction (connection lost) from <[email protected]>

The Kunena debug error is: Could not instantiate mail function.

If I search a bit for the error message I see for example this
stackoverflow.com/questions/10494065/smt...malformed-local-part
so check out the Kunena Forum: Configuration tab users > Subscriptions whether E-mail to Multiple Recipients is set to 0 ?

have you tried setting the E-mail to Multiple Recipients to 0?
and is the Visible E-mail Recipient a good E-mail address, so made in your domain environment.
and what happens if you leave it empty does it work.
