I have searched the WordPress.org site, the forums, the WordPress.com forums, Google, and the forums and knowledgebase of my new host, BlueHost.com. I cannot find the answer to my last remaining issue with hosting my own WordPress blog – how the heck to you get comment notification email to work?!
I tried everything I could think of. I even did a live chat with a BlueHost support person and we couldn’t find anything wrong. Installed the wp-PHPMailer plugin and that didn’t work either.Â I must have configured that thing a dozen different ways but I was never able to receive an email when someone would post a comment to the blog.
I’m going to post a question on the BlueHost support forums next, but for now I have subscribed to the Comments RSS feed until I get this figured out.Â It’s better than nothing.Â One step away from perfection.Â If anyone has a suggestion please leave it in the comments, I’ll eventually see it in my feed reader.
