Email validation is not working

Hello I installed a new version of OJS 3.3.0-6. I am trying to get user email validation to work Previously I was working with 3.3.0-4, and email validation worked. I am attaching the email settings from the file. Currently the system ignores email validation. No emails are sent, and users can login immediately after registration. Please advice me what might be the issue

;Use SMTP for sending mail instead of mail()

; By default the DMARC compliant from will have an empty name but this can

; be changed by adding a text here.

Hi @guest1810,

I’m not too familiar with these configurations so won’t be able to assist, but I just wanted to bring this section of our administrator’s manual to your attention: Email

You may wish to try some of the suggestions there, but other community members may wish to offer suggestions as well.

Best regards,

PKP Team

Thank you. Hopefully this will work.
