Posted:  25 Oct 2016 20:20
Hi there,

I was enjoying the new version of the calendar just fine until one day, the cron job stopped sending emails. I have been over the system logs and racked my brains - but cannot think of anything that changed (to the best of my knowledge) around the time the notifications stopped sending.

If I go to the SMTPtest page, emails send just fine. I have deleted and re-downloaded the calendar files, then restored a database backup. Still no joy. The cron job appears to open and run just fine.

If I got to the calendar settings and select 'Send test mail', it says 'Test mail sent to '.
So now, without wiping out the databases, i'm stuck for ideas.
Using my gmail acount for smtp server.

Any help would be much appreciated as we keep forgetting about things with no reminders!

Kind Regards,
Matt

Hello Matt,

You mention that SMTPtest works saying it sent the email. Do you receive the test email?

Kind regards,
Dan

Hi Dan,
Yeah the test email from SMTP test works fine. The test email from the calendar config page does not. Still scratching my head here! :(

Thanks

Check your server log to see if there are any errors. If there aren't any errors in your server log, try using a different email account. Perhaps for some reason it is being blocked if being run by the cron.

Regards,
Dan
