When ever i post a message i selected "Notify when a reply is posted" option in this forum. But i didn't receive any emails when there is reply posted.

In My Profile i have following options :

1) Send e-mail notification when posts get answered: Yes
2) Send e-mail when a private message is sent: No
3) Email Address: <xxx@yahoo.com>

Do i need to change any other configuration settings to receive emails?

Thanks,
Gopal

We were using gmail's servers, but it seems that they are blocking this kind of stuff. We should probably go with another server.

No Problem. I just want to see how this will work. So that i can configure in my forum application.

Do you have the list of properties to configure an email server for this feature?

All "mail.*" properties found at SystemGlobals.properties, or from Admin Panel -> Configuration

Hi Rafael,

I set the following properties in jforum-custom.conf to enable email notifier.

mail.notify.answers=true
mail.smtp.auth=true
mail.sender=notifier@xxx.net
mail.smtp.password=xxxxxx
mail.smtp.username=notifier@xxx.net
mail.user.email.auth=false
mail.smtp.host=mail.xxx.net

But i am not getting any emails and also i didn't see any errors in my tomcat log.

Am i missing something here?
Is there any better way to find the problem?

I am using JForum 2.1.6.

Gopal

The server requires a secure connection?
