This is just to inform everyone that emails are not working. We know where the issue lies but unable to fix it until during the week

[UPDATE]: Emails are now reportedly working so announcement closed

Update: it seems I have found a work around for now. As a result, I have now turned this global announcement into a normal announcement until I know the issue has been rectified completely.

Update: seems that everyone needs to say that emails from is are not spam. This will (certainly in my case) return emails to your normal inbox.

Thats not a genuine fix, honestly because what about new users?

Well, I seem to recall we had exactly the same issue with se-nse hence why I'm looking into editing the registration to tell the new users to check their spam inbox.

It is due to the way php and phpbb sends emails. I doubt we are the only site with this issue.

However, if you can find an article fixing the error, then post it instead of criticizing the fix I have found!

I was not criticizing but a bit concerned about the new users, that's all. Sorry if I were rude.
