    Hey everyone, I am working on a website that will be released soon, and was once able to send confirmation emails to my members, but now for some reason cant. Everything in the database and the code stayed the same, the only thing that did change was my domain, and I got a new email for cpanel. Does anybody know whats wrong?

    Edit*** It isnt working for anyone else with x10hosting as well with free accounts

    hi, please note that on the free servers mail may take a few hours to be processed due to a spam filter they have to go through, if you want faster mail, please feel free to use the premium services or buy Illuminated/Prime membership found in your account panel at

    hmm? Have you checked the Junk mail of the inbox(es). If they aren't there, then the spam filter might have caught em.

    I'm going to get an admin to look into this, as I think the email systems as a whole might be down right now.

    This isnt very good, that all of emailing is down. The reputation of the website cant be good

    Best thing is to avoid the system if possible.

    1. Set up Google Apps account for the domain name. Free.
    2. Use cPanel to set up the MX records of your domain to point to Google. That way all incoming mail goes to the Google Apps account and you can read it there.
    3. Use PHPMailer and SMTP in scripts instead of mail() to send your outgoing mail through Google.
    4. WordPress and Drupal both have settings/plugins that allow you to use SMTP and Google. I assume most other major scripts have the same.
    5. Added benefit is that Hotmail and others will not blacklist/bounce the email.
