Any ideas why this may be happenging?

Configuration >> Email to a Friend >>Email templates

Enabled Yes
Select email template

Is there another setting somewhere I am missing?  No emails are being sent from the system.

No emails are being sent from the system.

Are you receiving any emails at all from the system, or just not receiving this particular email?

If you’re not receiving any email at all it is most likely a server setting that is not correct.

I’m receiving emails for sign up, payment notifications, invoices, etc.

So, it only seems to be specific to the Wish List Sharing form.

This could be an issue with your email server settings. Check with your hosting provider that the user apache is able to send mail or search through the forums on SMTP Authentication. You may need to change some code to get emails to send as your SMTP server may require authentication.

I’m having this same issue, was this ever resolved?

It’s not a issue with the email settings. I receive all other emails from the system. The only ones that don’t work are the wish list sharing.

Same here as well...everything else seems to work but this feature.

I am also having the same problem. My host requires SMTP Authentication for sending email and doesn’t support PHPMail because it lacks SMTP Authentication. I have search for SMTP Authentication and tried some of the code changes, but they appear to be for the older version of Magento. Any suggestions would be great.

So you’re not getting invoices on sales either? I have all the other notices working except the email to friend. I even get the following:
*Link to a friend was sent.

I know it is my hosting company. I am not getting any email to send through Magento. I need to find a way to send email using SMTP Authentication. How did you get your other email to send?
