Hi,
I have just started using Limesurvey. I'm running Version 2.05+ Build 141003 (updated today) on a shared server hosted at Dreamhost.
I have created my first survey and sent invitations to two email addresses but neither email arrived at the recipient. They are not in the spam folders. I have Limesurvey configured to send email using PHP. I have been able to send email using PHP in a Wordpress installation I have on the same server.
Next to the participants' tokens, Limesurvey says the emails have been sent.
Can anyone suggest what I should do next to find out why emails are not going?

Thanks for any help!

I find that mailing via PHP is always tricky. I personally would send emails via SMTP, especially as you can better control everything and you can receive error messages to the email address that sends the emails.

I'm not a LimeSurvey GmbH member. I answer at the LimeSurvey forum in my spare time. No support via private message.
