Send messages to administrator from wpForo.
My problem is the following:
My wpForo is installed in a domain like www.midominio.com.
If I configure the wpForo to send the messages to firstname.lastname@example.org, when an user register a question, the message don't arrive.
If I configure with email@example.com or similar , the message arrive without problem.
I think that the domain can not be the same, is it possible?
How could I solve this problem?, because I'd need that the mail to belong the same domain.
Outgoing email belongs to Wordpress core and not wpForo. wpForo doesn't send (itselft) any email out, it queues to Wordpress functions.
So your issue is Wordpress smtp out. Install some plugin with extended email logs and check what the issue is.
Gmail is not to be used as smtp, it always surprises me why webmasters do that. Your hosting provider is for your DOMAIN to send out email.
firstname.lastname@example.org was a example.
If I conifgure with other email (email@example.com) the message arrive without problem, the message doesn't arrive when the email belong the same domain of foro.
thanks, we are going to check WordPress.
An smtp plugin with logs will help you find the issue. All i can tell you is that there is no issue with wpForo emails. None.
Same domain or not, should work if all is correct.
