Thank you all, dear Moodlers, for all of your advice. I have been trying all sorts of things all day long in between classes.

The last thing that Ian and I did was to follow Peter's detailed instructions from here at school. However, it doesnt seem to be working, so I will ask Ian to try it again tonight from home, outside the firewall. Also, he has asked his provider for the script as well (just in case.)

Also, I followed Peter's excellent instructions on checking whether or ot the mail function was really processing. In fact, I changed my own e-mial from a Hokkai gakuen address to a gmail address just in case it was being blocked by a firewall. I ran the cron.php script and it said: Could not instantiate mail function. So it seems that there is something wrong there as well.

Anyway, I will let you all know how things are going after Ian tries again!

One thing I have learned: How great the Moodle support community is!

Still hanging in there,
