I am working in magento 188.8.131.52.When a new customer registers, the message is displayed saying that the confirmation mail is sent but confirmation mail is not sent.Also I have already set system->configuration->customer->customer configuration->Require emails confirmation=yes.Should anything be done additionally.Kindly anyone guide me.
If you have a new magento installation, and you notice that the join process takes a very long time to complete, your sendmail is probably the source.Some new servers dont have sendmail setup properly and you need to adjust a few things.For slow email from the app, edit 3 files. 1) /etc/resolv.conf, add search whateveryourdomainnameis.com in before the nameservers.
[root@Web1 etc]# cat /etc/resolv.conf search whateveryourdomain.com nameserver 184.108.40.206 nameserver 220.127.116.11
2) /etc/mail/sendmail.cf Uncomment the line 0 HostsFile=/etc/hosts
# hosts file (normally /etc/hosts) O HostsFile=/etc/hosts
3) /etc/hosts add www.whateveryourdomainnameis.com and whateveryourdomainnameis.com to the IP address for this server.
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4 ::1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost6 localhost6.localdomain6 10.183.131.193 Web1 22.222.344.42 Web1 127.0.0.1 www.whateveryourdomainnameis.com whateveryourdomainnameis.com
4) Also I added sendmail to the chkconfig to make sure it restarts if the server restarts
[root@Web1 etc]# chkconfig sendmail on
