Code: Select all
Joomla : 2.5.9
component_com_jevents : 2.2.8
component_com_rsvppro : 1.9.4
layout_extplus : 2.5.7
plugin_jevents_jevhiddendetail : 1.2.1
plugin_jevents_jevrsvppro : 1.9.4

I had a Gold membership but it expired and can't afford to renew it. I migrated hosting providers using Akeeba Backup. Everything works fine except jevents will no longer send emails, primarily the cronjob & I have it setup to send out an email on cancellations only. I even copy & paste the link to the cron job ( and get the following message:

whole event cutoff = 2013-03-20 04:00:58
found 2 rows
found reminders for 2 event/users.
found reminders for 2 event/users.
FAILED TO SEND message to C*****
FAILED TO SEND message to J*****
FAILED TO SEND message to M*****
FAILED TO SEND message to C*****
Send 0 reminders - 4 remain

I have tested Joomla through the Users --> Mass Mail Users function and it sends out emails successfully. However when I create a new user, it does NOT send out an email, it adds the user and gives me this message: Could not instantiate mail function.

Do you have any ideas on what I need to do? Thanks.

This means that your new hosting provider has a more strict email settings.

I would suggest contacting them as to what you should set your Joomla! Install to, and try again.

Feel free to PM me if you would like Custom Installs or Joomla! related work for a competitive quote.
