    Email Notifications

    Running Umbraco 7.4.1.

    Appear to have installed Dialogue correctly (in that I can see forum, category, login,registation) in my content tree.

    Registering/login of user also works, member successfully added in the Umbraco backend.

    Having an issue though in that Email Notification is not working - as in when a member registers, requests a new password, email notifications of post replies.... no email is sent.

    I have checked SMTP settings in web.config and settings entered correctly (as a test have also used smtp settings from a 2nd site I manage and still nothing) .

    Have also added emails where needed on the forum settings within the content tree.

    I'm not particularly techie, wondering if anyone might have an idea why email notifications wouldn't be sending?

    Have you checked for any errors in the log files ?

    We'll first of all you need to configure the SMTP-server in the root web.config-file.

    You also need to make sure that there is an email configured in /config/umbracoSettings.config

              <!-- the email that should be used as from mail when umbraco sends a notification -->
              <email>[email protected]</email>

    Sometimes, we've also seen that you need to add SPF-headers on the domain ( in this example) to make sure that the configured mailserver (in web.config) are a valid sender for this domain.
