Registration emails have stopped being sent

This has just recently happened and I have no idea why. It is the most vital function of EE for me. I have looked at support forums and they say check the message log by going to event espresso>messages but I cannot see where that is either on the wordpress dashboard or EE site. Can someone help me please?

You likely read forum posts for EE4 because EE4 has an Event Espresso > Messages admin page. Event Espresso 3 does not have this.

What you can do instead is add a plugin to log emails like this one:

With that plugin activated, the next time there’s a registration you can check the logs. If it shows an email was sent, then you can check your spam folder, it may have landed there.

In most cases, setting up a third party service to deliver email will resolve email delivery issues. The built-in mail servers (especially those that are used for shared hosting accounts) can be unreliable. We recommend using a service like Mandrill, Postmark, or any of the other services listed in our documentation for sending transactional email. More info here:

Alternatively, you could also use a gmail account and configure a plugin like the WP Mail SMTP plugin to send the emails.
