Running Tiki 2.2 ( still trying to get 3.3 to run)

Issue is email notification as part of the watch feature. I as admin with the same email address as the host domain, get emails...any other email address, just report mail error in the tiki log.

Any solutions/ideas would be welcome

There are some options in admin -> general like mail end... You can try to switch.
Otherwise try a little program outside tikiwiki ( ex can be found there http://us2.php.net/manual/en/book.mail.php) to see if it is a tikiwiki problem or a server configuration

Thanks for the link.

DEfinately this is the issue.

But I am confused is it only tiki 4 that there is web interface/admin general where you can select and change smtp, user pw etc

I ask as I have looked for a email section where i can
1. Visit tiki-admin.php?page=general
2. Select SMTP in the mail section.
3. Enter the information about your email account
in 2.2 and 3.3 not obvious to me if it there.

Many thanks
