I just installed the latest version of mybb forum on my site. Everything works well except new users don't receive activation code. My php mail test was also successful. What should I do? here forum link http://www.watchathletics.com/forums

Maybe all emails go in spam folder because of mass email from same IP address, if not in spam folder try to send email from SMTP.

Spam is empty nothing goes there. How do I set up SMTP?

SMTP hostname?
SMTP port?
SMTP username and Password - Is the one i used to creat my admin?
use your email account(created from your cpanel).

SMTP host name: use your website
port: 25
username: your email
password: your password used when you created your email.

or sign up for a free email provider like mailgun or targethero
Some web hosting providers blocks mass traffic from specific accounts when they are not using SMTP authentication.

Just switch to SMTP and will work like a charm.

Note: I think MyBB should notify somehow the admin that an email couldn't be sent... it happened to me some months ago and it took several weeks until I figured it out.

I had the same problem with GoDaddy so I changed it to SMTP.

If you are with GoDaddy and set up SMTP mail use port: 80
