help I was just informed by a user that he got no email for the password recovery
my version is 1.8.12 which I updated from 1.8.7
Forum: http://anti-globe.net/index.php

MyBB was unable to send the email using the PHP mail() function.

how can I fix this?
have you tested this out yourself?

yes he told me to try it out myself and it didn't work

update: I registered a testaccount, activate myself and did not get a email

also once I change something in the admin cp I can't logout anymore and have to copy the old setttings.php in filezilla

update: it also works with deleting cookies
okay now I've cleared my cookies and can't log-in anymore
had to do the inc/settings.php trick

I changed to smtp and tried password recovery but the forum seems broken as it still says the same "MyBB was unable to send the email using the PHP mail() function."
