I have successfully moved my site to a different hosting company -
When I send myself a test PM, I get an e-mail notification of it almost right away -
When I sent a mass E-mail via Mega Mail, it does not start, get errors, (I have been using Mega Mass for several years, am familiar with it, and it always works) -
I have NOT set up any new e-mail accounts on the new server yet, (could that be why)?
It has been a week and I have been unable to notify my old members that the site is up and running -
I am frustrated trying to figure it out so have come here for help - thanks - New Guy -

And the errors say what?
Copying and pasting the error message may be of great help in identifying the problem.
Does the ordinary email system work? Can you send yourself an email or are there errors?
Do you get an error message when sending a PM as that also requires an email to be sent?
I am not familiar with Megamail but does it use the PHP sendmail or does it use the smtp mailer.
Are you sure that you have set your system email for phpBB to the one that Megamail requires?
