New user registeration email

When a new user registers, he gets following in the email and nothing else

; charset=""
  • I have installed the latest version of elgg 1.11.2, without any external plugins and the user doesnt receive any validation email upon registering.
    Problem where user receives charset="" in email was with previous version of elgg i.e 1.11.1, but with 1.11.2 nothing is received, no email at all.

  • I followed the procedure mentioned in :  and got following message, and email was not received in my inbox.

    Attempting to email
    SUCCESS! PHP successfully delivered email to your MTA. If you don't see the email in your inbox in a few minutes, there is a problem with your MTA.

    So that means that problem lies with my hosting server I guess...

  • Have or put in your php.ini file.


    ; PHP's built-in default is text/html
    default_mimetype = "text/html"
    default_charset = "UTF-8"

  • Doesn't it get added automatically upon new installation. Or do we need at add it manually/separately?

  • No it doesn't. It fixed the problem I had with registration emails not be received.

  • Ok. thanks for the help...

    My issue was with the hosting server, as it didn't allow email sending feature on free account........ So I upgraded my account to premium one and it got resolved now.
