Hello

I have just finished importing 25,000 users from an old custom forum into the YAF database.

I enabled the email pickup directory in web.config and commented out the SMTP server details because I did not want users to receive emails about their egistration while I was testing the import. 

I saw the email files appear in the pickup folder and deleted them.

I cannot find this documented anywhere - but could somebody confirm that by deleting the .eml files that YAF will not send those emails.

They're not stored in a queue anywhere else? Either as files or in the database?

I had about 10 attempts at my export and import into YAF and want to be absolutely certain no registration confirmation emails will be sent before I enable the SMTP settings.

Thanks,
BillD

Do you mean the email verification mails or the welcome mails? Both are only send once. However the email verification mails are stored in the yaf_CheckMail table, because they contain the verification code.

Thank you for the reply.

I unserstand each email is only sent once, but i had something like 10 attenpts before my export / import worked 100%. 

So, if ensure rhe yaf_CheckMail table *and* the email pickup folder are empty then I can be confident I can enable SMTP email and YAF will not send any queued email?

Thanks,
BillD

Its possible that the sendmail client try to send the mail multiple times, but this has nothing to do with yaf. Yaf, as i wrote before only send it once.

But you can disable the welcome mail. Only the email confirmation is required.
