I am trying to allow people to create accounts for a forum I’m going to roll out. The goal is to have only registered users be able to post comments and topics. Now, I want it to have email verification during the registration process and as far as I can tell, everything is set correctly. However, I never receive the registration email. I do, however, receive every email sent if I do ANYTHING to the test account in the user management part of WordPress. I move the account to Pending Admin Review? I get a pending admin review email. I approve the account? I get an approved account email. I delete the account? I get a deleted account email. I resend the email verification email? Nothing.
If it helps, I installed Ultimate Member (free edition) so that way the whole account process looks like it’s native to my page.
