XF 1.4 Unable to send emails


Well-known member

I had [bd] mails installed on my forum. Since I disabled that mod I then get this server error when people try to send messages

Zend_Mail_Transport_Exception: Email to myemail@gmail.com failed: Unable to send mail. - library/Zend/Mail/Transport/Sendmail.php:137

Prior to having the mod installed, everything worked fine. Since disabling it, no emails will go through!

Dont suppose anyone can shed any light on what may be causing it?

That's just using PHP mail() to send the email which passes off to a sendmail equivalent. It only tells us whether that accepted the mail for sending; if it doesn't, this error is logged. Any more specific errors would need to be found in your server's mail log.
