    Arrow How to view sent mails ?


    Hi,
    The problem is I have installed Wordpress MU on my vBox CentOS machine. Now the verification mail being sent through my server gets marked as spam in midway so am unable to activate the signing users through those emails.

    My query is - can I see the contents of these mail that Wordpess is sending so that I may click on those links myself to activate the users?

    I believe CentOS uses SendMail.

    thanks,
    - nooby

    perhaps it would be easier just to fix the problem and make the email NOT be flagged as spam.

    the mail is being sent from your box to an email account you have somewhere else correct? it will probably be flagged as spam if you do not have your DNS set up properly (MX records, etc.)

    scathefire is right.
    Find the reason, why mail from your server is marked as spam and solve that.

    Apart from that:
    I do not know wordpress, but somehow catching sent mails to click on an activation link seems not efficient.
    Is there an admin area, where you can look at pending users and activate them there?
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.

    Hey Lrithori thanks for your attention. It's wordpress'd default method ot activate users. It sends a verification link and you have to click on it to activate it's user account. Anyways, my mail was being marked as spam because i am not in a real prod environment(no Domain name). Google marks all such mail as spam.
