Could not instantiate mail function?

Post by CBI Web » Wed Oct 20, 2021 1:38 pm

I added a new user, and while the user was saved, I also got this warning:
Could not instantiate mail function.
Email could not be sent.
What do I do with that?

Check your email setting in Global Configuration. There is also a test button to test your serveres ability to send mail.
