The email notifications system does not function with an ipv6 only mail server.
php: /system_advanced_notifications.php: Could not send the message to william@jagels.us -- Error: could not connect to the host "mail.jagels.us": ??

  • Subject changed from Email notifications don't work with IPv6 SMTP servers to Email notifications don't work with IPv6-only SMTP servers

our smtp.inc (looks to be from elsewhere, phpmailer maybe) uses gethostbyname to check whether a hostname is valid. gethostbyname in PHP is IPv4-only, so that check fails for any hostname that doesn't have an A record.

Maybe this could help? (Although it's in norweign, the code itself is pretty easy and simple)

smtp.inc is gone from 2.4, it's using pear-Net_SMTP and other pear stuff. This bug is not really relevant any more.
