I've started using OJS, recently upgraded to 2.3.8, for a Swedish open access journal. We want it to be able to use both English and Swedish, but right now Swedish is the default language, and the most complete one. We don't want readers to be able to register as such, but we want unregistered users to be able to subscribe to notifications from us, within the mailing list that OJS provides.
At first, when I was logged out and as a test tried to subscribe different email addresses to the mailing list, I had the problem of blank emails being sent out instead of emails with the link to click to confirm your subscription. But I think I solved this, by (as described here in the support forum) creating the three email templates for notifications that were missing in Swedish. The system then didn't recognize them as such, until I reloaded the Swedish locale, which I also was instructed to do. But I think it was then that no subscription confirmation emails were sent out at all anymore. When I try, it says (but in Swedish...) "An email has been sent to the address you specified. Please click on the confirmation link in the email to add yourself to the mailing list." - but i don't receive an email.
The "notification_settings" in the PHP server shows me the value "mailListUnconfirmed" for "setting_name" and "setting_value" is the address I tried to subscribe. The "user_id" is "0". I've both tried to subscribe these addresses again and deleted them from the "notification_settings" and tried to subscribe them again, with no result. I don't know if I've done any difference, but I've changed the config.inc.php [email] settings to "Maximum number of days before an unvalidated account expires and is deleted
validation_timeout = 2" instead of 14 days just to make it forget faster right now.
It obviously has been working (although blank), and other emailing fron our journal seems to be fine, when I try it. Why doesn't it work now, and how can I fix this frustrating problem?
