Email confirmation is not being sent out, Hostgator is my hosting company. I've tried registering as a seller several times and have received the following statement on my website "an email sent to your email address with your registration information" (I used a hotmail account). However, I have yet to receive any confirmation emails. I'm looking to start rather seriously very soon and I need to be 100% positive that the site works correctly... any insight would be helpful. I've read through most of the posts relating to emails, but I could not find a cure. Please help
Make sure the email status is "ON" in admin->configuration. Try to set the emails in the configuratin also and try to test with the contact us form. Try not to use hotmail may be your ISP or IPs are marked as SPAMers for hotmail and your emails goes to the junk folder which you can check.
