Done! Prefer CSV. Just email to ''

Just all the member data - name, adr, etc.
I'm not concerned about the postings, attachments, etc.

Would you be willing to export just the member data in CSV format for less?

I'm the admin for that's pretty inactive now.

Would it be possible to get a dump of the member database table, or even better, a CSV of the database?

One other minor bug I noticed during testing, would you like me to post it someplace else instead? Or perhaps Sibyl would want to move it?

I registered a new user, then logged in as admin, went to the approval screen, selected 'reject with email', got the confirmation dialog box, clicked cancel (because I hadn't checked the box selecting which to reject), clicked the select box on, then went back to 'reject with email', but I couldn't get it to display the dialog box again. It did nothing whenever I again selected 'reject with email'.

I had to select another option (reject), cancel out of that confirmation dialog box, then I could select the 'reject with email' option and it worked.

General Support / Re: No emails to admin on signups? - need SPF

Further info on the problem - my email ISP requires the email be sent by a server that uses SPF (to reduce spam), and the smfforfree email apparently does not use this facility when sending email. Gmail also wants to see it too, but fortunately (for us) does not seem to actually reject email that doesn't use SPF - yet. But it may in the future. You  might want to get the admin people to implement SPF so that email won't start being rejected everywhere someday.

The error message from google is in the previous posting.

OK, I think we're on the final stretch! Whew!

The problem seemed to be a consortium of issues.

The first was that I had several 'Field IDs' on custom fields the same. I had changed the names so all the names were unique, but not the IDs. The field IDs apparently must also be unique, though I'd suggest adding code to check for uniqueness when you enter custom fields if they're that serious and the broken result is that obscure. And for some reason, email notification was working at one time, then stopped working at some point so something changed in how the non-unique fields are handled.

Then the next problem appeared to be with my ISP, apparently when SMF sends email, it does something that makes pessimistic spam filters (which my ISP has) think it's spam. I changed to using, and it still gets an error of some sort but it seems to get through anyway. Perhaps DNS reverse lookup problem? Any info about the error would be helpful too. The IP address of is apparently
Here's a piece of the successful email header:

Received-SPF: fail ( domain of does not designate as permitted sender) client-ip=;
Authentication-Results:; spf=hardfail ( domain of does not designate as permitted sender)
Received: from fdcserve-a9a238 ([]) by with MailEnable ESMTP; Mon, 27 Jul 2009 21:46:23 -0500

>>> You won't see the standard ones in your settings anywhere.
You mean that there are data that the admin can't even see? Sounds like "write only memory" to me.

I've changed my SMF email to be and I'm still not getting anything, and I checked my spam folder. Another person signed up today, did you get notification? I haven't removed you from admin. If you didn't, then it's still not working. I just now registered 'aatesting', see if you get notification. I haven't gotten anything yet. I suspect it worked only once, now it's broken again. Sigh.

I don't seem to be getting that database error anymore at least the times I tried.

I do need to be able to get the country when somebody registers so I need my country entry - you indicated that I can't access the standard one. And now that I've changed the ID, there's no chance my 'country' field and the standard 'country' field will collide.

Suppose, as you suggest, I delete the fields that I had multiply-named the IDs and then recreate. Would that field data in all the entries of my members get deleted when I delete that field? If so, that sounds like a really bad solution. I would lose all the country information.

I would think the developer could look at it and see what's wrong. Again, the email to the person trying to register seems to get thru, but not to the admins.

Sorry to be dense, but I'm still confused. I've looked all over and can't find where I can see the standard country, state, and zip of a given entry. That's why I put my own fields in there, and I've renamed all of them now to be like YourCountry, Yourstate, etc., so there should be no conflict. I think they're all that way now.

I did have one like CP4, I changed that to reflect the field name more, I didn't understand your suggestion I should have left it CP4?

AFAIK, all my field IDs are unique. But I still never got the signup message that you received. I'll change to a gmail account and see if it goes there OK.

Oh, I see, there was already a standard country item, I didn't need the custom country field. OK, I fixed that. Now when I try doing a test signup, I still never get email, and about 1/2 of the time I get the following error. I thought it was because I left some fields blank, but in trying multiple times, that doesn't seem to matter.

Please try again. If you come back to this error screen, report the error to an administrator.

You didn't answer the question to clear things up, so I tried renaming the fields that were all called 'country' (a victim of copy/modify :-) ) and that doesn't seem to help. Somebody signed up and I still didn't get an email about it.

Please take another look.

Thanks for looking at it. I noticed that several fields have the "Field Description" field as "Country", is that what you mean, they all have to be unique? I've now changed them. If that's the case, why would the duplication of the field description prevent emails?

It's very strange, it was working and without changing the field description, all of a sudden email notification stopped working.

Come on folks. It's been about 5 months since I originally posted the issue, and have heard only once from somebody who could actually look at the problem last Feb, and to answer his question (which I already did), no, it's not the ISP. All the admins on several different ISPs, ALL stopped getting notification of new members at the same time. Also, my wife has another forum elsewhere (both paid for, BTW) that started having the same problem. And again, the notification of new postings DOES work. So that's TWO datapoints indicating that it's not my ISP, it's most likely in smfforfree.

Could somebody please look at what's going on? It's irritating to have to look regularly for new signups and it's supposed to work.

Hello? Anybody home? It's been almost 2 months since I originally posted this note.
