I have a problem with the system sending Magento . Do not want to send e -mail order confirmation (e- mails about the account is sent ) . When you refresh a cron job in my web browser , these emails are sent , but I wish it would happen automatically. I installed the program sheulder which shows that the e- mails are stuck in the queue and do not want to leave. I would ask you to explain the process of how to fix this for a beginner .
If you haven't by now, please set up a cron job on your server which calls
<magento_root>/cron.sh every 5 minutes or less. That will cause all emails to be sent.
I had a similar issue where many emails were being sent (for some reason they weren't queued) but others just didn't get out until I set up cron the right way.
If you are on Linux, just add this line to your crontab file, which you can access via the Linux command
*/5 * * * * /bin/sh /absolute/path/to/magento/cron.sh
For more information about other operating systems and cron's role in Magento, check this site.
If you get errors regarding
/proc, comment out the lines in
cron.sh which check whether the process is already running.
