We have had some issues with self-registration confirmation email being sent. I guess the only thing worse than something not working, is having it work sometimes. Could I impose on you with providing a core-developer response to this forum, and specifically dealing with the suggestions in this forum, viz.,
- "support email address needing to be on the same domain as the Moodle itself? Because that worked like a dream for me and others. "
- "I configured this to use SMTP and it works. Does not seem to work with the PHP routines."
- the role of CRON set-up in assisting with self-registration
I feel it's too easy to say it's a spam or a blocked domain issue. The moodle we have is installed on a fresh domain with no email accounts associated with it. We have tried self-reg with a variety of email address. Gmail seems to work infallibly. For other addresses we are not finding the confirm email in the local email client spam folder or in the server spam folder. Our admin/support email is in fact from a different domain, so if that is the issue, great, we'll go ahead and implement it. I will appreciate if you can take the time to do this, as self-registration is crucial to the functioning of providing free content on our site without having the burden of manually enrolling users or confirming them.
