Event Registration Approved email stopped sending automatically

The Event Registration Details emailed stopped sending after a user registers. This suddenly stopped a week ago. All other EE emails are flowing as normal (via WP SMTP plugin ~ Send in Blue with verified domain).

I can manually hit the Resend Registration Details button and the email goes out. I can send Test emails without issue. However, during the normal flow of event signups, it no longer works as it used to.

Hi there,

If you view Event Espresso -> Messages -> Message Activity, does it show the message as sent there?

If unsure, add a new registration to test it and then view that same section, it should initially show as a row with ‘no recipient’. (Don’t click through to generate/send as you want to test this as close to ‘live’ as you can)

Wait around 5 mins and refresh, it should have moved to waiting to send, again another 5 mins and refresh.

Does it show as sent but still isn’t received?

The last automated Registration Approved message was sent Sept 1 (9 days ago).

I just did a test registration + paypal. Registration and Payment successful. I saw 2 Payment Received emails (Primary Registrant + Event Admin) appear in EE Message Activity and confirmed both emails received in their respective email accounts. No signs of the “Event Registration Approved” emails.

After you complete payment within PayPal, were you redirected back to the thank you page? (The thank you page is what triggers the messages).

I had a quick look over your site and it looks like you are using PayPal Standard and I highly recommend switching to PayPal Express:

We deprecated PayPal standard a while back to due IPN reliability issues and regardless of the issue at hand, I’d recommend switching over (switching may well fix the problem anyway).

This appears to have resolved the issue, thank you.
