the second problem is when someone registers with the site they get this error:
Warning: mail(): Failed to connect to mailserver at "localhost" port 25, verify your "SMTP" and "smtp_port" setting in php.ini or use ini_set() in D:\hshome\tribes\tribalevo.net\modules\Your_Account\index.php on line 146
I am not sure how to fix that either, I think I need to edit the php.ini settings. If thats the case then I don't know how or where to look for that file.

as fo your first problem:
i guess your server does not regard index.php as a "startup" file. i am not sure wheter you can change that on the server (if is it yours). bur what you can do:
create an index.html that you put aside to the index.php in the startup folder of your server. the source should be like this:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
this will forward every user to the index.php site within 0 seconds, so they won't notice.
i hope you did unerstand what i just was trying to explain.
hope that works.

yeah I understand that, I am not sure why I just didn't think about doing that. I did that for now, thanks for the help but it still doesn't fix the problem. however I think that you have given me some good ideas as to where I need to look to fix that problem.
now if anyone can help me with the new user email activation that would be great.

I had the same issue and was not able to fix on my own, I contacted my host telling them what you said here and within 10 min my site was fixed. What was done I have no clue, but they fixed it.

that could be the same reason the mail is not working. I have contacted my host and I will hear back from them and get that fixed.
