When posting, I just got a red error message: “Unable to send email. Please contact site administrators if problem persists.” (I might be paraphrasing slightly, because I didn’t save the message).
But I wasn’t trying to send an email, so what does it mean?
Does it mean the person I was replying to had signed up to be notified of replies, but the system couldn’t do it for them?
If so, why is it giving ME the error message? Shouldn’t it be telling the user who wanted to get emails, as it’s them who’s had a problem, not me?
To me, it looks as if the post posted OK. Usually, I can’t tell if the person I’m replying to had elected to be notified or not, so there doesn’t seem much point alerting me about it.
