    Trying to send email to unvalidated users and I am getting this error:

    Admin Control Panel - The Fierce Board

    Server Error

    It looks to me like the SMTP connection is failing for some reason. Did you specify a SMTP server?

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

    It's hard to know why the connection is failing, but you can try the default mail server.

    I did. I am sending out notification emails just fine.

    I have a related question, how do I send out 'mass e-mail' to users letting them know of a recent event?

    ACP -> Users -> Email Users

    Is this probably just a bug from being a beta or should I be seeing if I messed something up?

    Nope, just tried it. It works.

    As Jake said above, "broken pipe" usually indicates a problem with the network/SMTP service.
