Forum rules
What to do if you have a technical problem with OCS:

1. Search the forum. You can do this from the Advanced Search Page or from our Google Custom Search, which will search the entire PKP site. If you are encountering an error, we especially recommend searching the forum for said error.

2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved. Please note that this FAQ is OJS-centric, but most issues are applicable to both platforms.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OCS Conference Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Hello everyone,

My OCS presents a strange behavior.

I have created a new conference and submissions are ok. Now we are in the review's phase, but the Directors can't send email for anyone.

I have tested the sistem logging in as administrator. The administrator can send email for users. When the admin go to list of users and send email it's work. In this case the PHP email config are working, but Track Directors and Reviwers can't send email. The emaiis in those cases never arrive.

Anyone could help...

Hi rbgtoffolo,

Can you do some testing and see if anything shows up in your server's error log? If the mail messages are bouncing for some reason, they may also be in a mail spool file belonging to the user that your web server runs as. If they bounce, there will be a message describing why included in the bounced email.
