Forum email server configured improperly

Post by Aethius1 » Sun Jan 13, 2019 9:26 pm

Hello, I had to use my yahoo email account to register my forum account on this site. The reason is that your SMTP server is configured improperly. You are not following current best practices and account registration confirmation emails and notifications will be rejected by probably 99% of servers or at least redirected into their spam folder.

If you need help setting up your mail server, I am willing to help! I'm willing to offer my services to keep this project going in any way possible.

(Replied to you on Discord as well)

Thanks! I've changed the hostname used by the outgoing SMTP connections.

I have had to block registration for a few mail providers as the spam bots were using them (even getting past the google captcha)
