Hi,
My problem is that after registration on my forum the email with the password isn't sent. What can be wrong? It worked before I connected a domain name to my web-account.

Any ideas?

So, if it worked before and it is working now, and you haven't changed anything in options - I think, it is not miniBB problem.

But what can be wrong than? How does miniBB send the emails?

It sends them via usual PHP function mail() - so, sendmail must be enabled on your server.

In our spam era also, many providers may block automated messages, if they consider them as spam or bulk. Unfortunatelly, there is no solution against that... either we fight spam and kill important messages, too; either we receive important messages amongst other sh*t.

Check the following variables in setup_options.php files:

$emailusers=1;
$genEmailDisable=0;

They all should be set as mentioned; else miniBB will ignore sending emails.

Your server also can not support sending emails. miniBB uses standard mail() function of PHP, which is connected to external mailing program. Contact hosting service for more details...
