Ok, I'm using the internal mail function with FudForum. It sends out the Registration Confirmation email but some email accounts never receive it. I know because I have tested it with numerous email accounts I have. Like myname(at)hereintown(dot)net, myname(at)yahoo(dot)com and myname(at)datasound(dot)us. The only account that the RC email gets through to is my myname(at)hotmail(dot)com account.
I'm guessing it has something to do with the header. I'm being hosted with Bravenet. I have checked to see if they are blacklisted(no). But Mail() uses sendmail on their server right?, I have no control over the header info that other servers see and use for spam detection and bounce functions. If I'm getting these bounced/rejected emails back, where would I look for them? Bravenet does not allow SMTP. So I have to use the PHP mail().

When FUDforum sends e-mail it sets a few headers, but the rest are picked by the sendmail. Perhaps you need to play with mail() function on your server to determine what headers make it "work" and then adjust forum's e-mail code inside iemail.inc.t accordingly.

Ok, but now the question is how I do this. I'm pretty new to PHP but I'm a quik learner. I will start looking for "iemail.inc.t". Or you can walk me through it?

Well, I can't seem to fix it. Anyone else want to try? I keep talking to Tech support with my hosting service and the tech support with my ISP and they both ask me the same question. "Can you show us the email that is getting rejected?". They know I can't because it is getting deleted. They just don't want to fess up to it. Or am I wrong? Why am I not getting these emails back?

I know my forum is sending out the Registration Confirmation email. It's getting delivered when I register with my Hotmail address. But if I register with any other email account, I never receive the Registration Confirmation email. Plus if I reply to a post I created, I receive the "new reply" notification. And I receive that email no mater what email account I register with.

If the forum is delivering e-mail to some accounts and not others it has to be mailing issue and not a forum issue. If something was broken in forum, no e-mail would be sent, period.

I had the same problem, it would send fine to hotmail accounts but wouldnt sent to my E-mail, infact when registering with this forum to post this I never received a registration E-mail and had to change it to a hotmail E-mail.

For anyone else having this problem what I did that seemed to take care of it was either remove any spaces in the subject section on line 545 of reset.php or replace them with \r\n
Ex: 'Registration'.'\r\n'.'Confirmation'

Hope it helps
