Activation Email's not being sent out.

    For the past week or so my community has been slowly growing, I have had over 200 registrations yet only 98 activated members. After speaking with a few members who were not activated they said the activation email was never sent.
    This is the case with most people, even if using an @gmail email account sometimes the activation email is never received.

    I was wondering if there was a fix or a way to remove the activation email part as I have had to spend a few hours manually searching through each member and setting them to 'Valid' state and not 'Awaiting activation email conformation'

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    To deal with spam filters:


    Or you can disable email confirmation:

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> User Registration -> Enable Email Confirmation

    You can run this query on your database to manually activate users who didn't receive the email:

    UPDATE xf_user
    SET user_state = 'valid'
    WHERE user_state = 'email_confirm';
