This is what my host sent me!


The only way you can send mail is via authenticated SMTP using a mailbox attached to the domain E.G. notifications@domainname.com the php mail or sendmail function is disallowed on our servers (due to its frequent abuse).


wouldnt i have to set it up in my admin panel on my forum? I can go set up the email now..and then what? Thanks!

That error means the mail is failing. Which server are you using?

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Email Options -> Email Transport Method

The default server would be your web host, meaning you need to contact them about PHP's internal mail not working. Or you can specify a SMTP server. Here is a guide for using Google as your SMTP server:
