Any idea why might that be?

Could this be associated with that?

Doubtful. Looks like your Error Documents are incorrectly configured tho. I don't have much experience with emails myself.

This might be a completely dumb question but: The phpmyadmin password was changed do you think this might have something to do with this?

No. PhpMyAdmin is used to administer your databases. What are your email settings in the options?

Just have my email and the predetermined protocol.
Make sure your username for the email account is correct (usually username@mailserver.xxx)
Make sure that the SMTP server is correct (usually smtp.domain.com)
Make sure that the port you are using is correct.
Make sure that SSL/TLS selection is correct for your SMTP server.
Are you using a shared hosting SMTP server (for your domain) or are you using gmails hosted apps smtp?

shared hosting SMTP server
Have you checked with your support folks at the hosting site to ascertain what the mailserver setup for SMTP should be (port #, SSL/TLS, server name, and login credential semantics)?
What hosting company is it?

I´m going to do just that. Thanks for the tips.

Bluehost.
Might it be that there were too many mails sent? I have about 100 not sent mails, and it was working ok before. We had a promotion running yesterday.

Very likely could be. A lot of the low budget hosts limit email deliveries from what I have seen.

Thank you for the information.


Now I have a lot of users not validated. Would it be a good solution to validate them? I can find them through the users search but don’t know if there is a simple way to validate them in bulk.

If you want them to validate, then they should be able to have their email validation resent to them if I remember correctly. I can't remember if that is an add-on or core to tell you the truth. You can contact BlueHost and ask them to up the limits (I think they will go up to 750), and explain to them you run a forum and use email for validation.

Thanks.
I’ll look for the resending of the email or validate them manually. I will also ask Bluehost for the email upgrade.


You both have been very helpful, much appreciated.
