YaBB Mail Does Not Work
Let me be more clear.

The two :NET mail programs do not work on my host.
The  yabb smtp engine only work with the default IP (127.0.0.1) and always gets returned.
The Unix smtp looks like it works but never gets delivered.

I have checked with my host and confirmed the sendmail path and that all my settings are correct.

If I switch between the yabb and Unix engines, the mail gets sent maybe twice then stops.

So I know that it is just being rejected.

I have a feedback form that works every time.
Maybe someone could analyze it to find out why it works and nothing from my forum does.


Thanks,
Dave

Re: YaBB Mail Does Not Work
The fact that any emails get sent at all means the problem probably isn't with your YaBB mail set up. There's something being flagged and rejected by the mail server. (But you know that.)

Formmail has fixed 'from' and 'to' email addresses. YaBB's Mailer.pl has a 'fixed' from (the webmaster's email address usually) and variable 'to' which might cause emails to be rejected as spam assuming the host has some sort of email filtering activated.

Have you tried changing the 'webmaster email'  in Advanced Settings -> email to the one being used in formmail?
