XF 1.3 Send Email


Well-known member
I run xenforo as a test installation beside my normal forum.
Same IP but different folder.

As i don`t want emails going out from xenforo to users who have watch a thread i put
$config['enableMail'] = false; into config.php.

If it possible that this affect also my normal forum?
Because since than from there also no emails are going out.

I want stop only xenforo to send out emails.

The config.php from one forum would have no effect on another's. Confirm that you have only made the change in the expected library/config.php file. Beyond that, if emails aren't going out (and you're sure they should be), you may need to contact your host (or SMTP provider) to determine what changed. Alternatively, you can try a different mail transport method.

To get it right.
The original forum still runs under VB.
The change was made only at the xenforo config.

My concern was that this was triggert over perl sendmail and so affect the other forum.

At the settings with our SMTP nothing was changed. This happen after put it into the config.

I took this now out of the config.
