Forum not email users

Hey guys, second 'Help me!!' question of the week.

Since I moved over to linode servers a week or so ago the board won't e-mail any of the users, both for subscribed topics and personal messages.

I'm using the default setting here as I was before and it worked fine, there are no logs specifying the error either. wondering if there is something on the server than needs installing? I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and got everytihgn working after installing a LAMP script.

Any ideas?

if you're using the default transport method then it sounds like an issue with your sendmail app'.
Possibly something isn't installed or configured correctly on the server?

Can you try using SMTP and see if that works?

Does your forum url have any "::" in it?
That caused a problem with me.
No, I don't have that problem

I'll give it a go and let you know...

Looks like it was sendmail.app - it was installed but it was acting up, I updated it and now it seems to be working - thanks guys!
