Have the forum installed and working, minus a few items related to email. Right now, the item in question is the password recovery. Enter user, correctly answer the security question and it says the email is sent. The problem is, it isn't. No record of the email getting sent exists in our smtp server. We've checked and double checked the config. Through a couple debug prints in the code and find that PasswordRecovery1_SendMailError is being called, and PasswordRecovery1_SendingMail never is. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong from a setup standpoint?

Thanks.

Do any YAF mail function work? Registration emails? anything? Also YAF Version needed anytime to help locate problem.
If you can't find it using the forum search, try my signature link -- searches this site using Google: Google is my Friend

v1.9.6.1

It actually doesn't seem like any email is working. I've verified the mail config settings, and they are correct. (I use the same config settings for another app, and that one works.)

I've thrown debugging information into each part of the email process, and the email functions never seem to actually get called.

doesn't work for us either.

i've tried on my own email adress and it says "password recovery failed"......

we're running yaf 2.0.1

looks like the "PasswordRecovery1_VerifyingUser" method is called, but then that's all.

is there something to enable in the membership provider like "passwordrecovery=true" ?

solution found for me :

add in the web.config/system.web/membership/providers, make sure you have

enablePasswordReset="true" enablePasswordRetrieval="false" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="false"
