Hi all,

We use silverstripes email functionality to send users an activation link after registration and to send them reminders (through a DailyTask). Since going live the email behave quite strange. Most of the emails are sent ok, but some (5% of the activation emails) are missing the recipient and some emails are totally blank. I can monitor this because of the bcc_all_emails_to in the config.

In the database the objects are correct. It somehow seems that the email templates are not populate in the right way.

We are using lighttpd with xcache for php acceleration. Could this be the cause for this.

Thanks in advance.

Try disabling xcache if you can. I have ran into issues with emails and xcache before so I wouldn't be surprised if this was your problem.

Thanks Willr for the hint.

Unfortunately our application is very resource/memory hungry. I tried turning of xcache and immediately ran into memory problems.

Do you have a suggestion for another php accelerator that works with emails or a workaround?
