Email notifications are not sent, not error reported

Problem:  OA is not sending notifications: both installation (icarda.org & benale.net) actually (When new users are signed up they receive the welcome email with the login.)

Suggested solution: set up cron
 
How-to including video: http://drupal.org/cron
 
Tested: Sending test email via SMTP module: works

No additional drupal modules need to be added to Atrium for notifications to work. You have what you need in the Atrium package. Setting up a cronjob[1] is all you need to do for them to work as you expect. On most of our Atrium installs (including community.openatrium.com) we set cron to run every five minutes.

Is your cron job working? test it by going to yoursite.com/cron.php if the cron is working the page should remain white. if it is not working it will probably just return to the page you were on last or your atrium homepage.
 
http://groups.benale.net/cron.php
page remains white
 
http://grops.icardfa.org/cron.php
returns some page on OA
 
Run cron manually on benale.net:  Error 310
This webpage has a redirect loop…
Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects
 
Run cron manually on icarda.org: Error 310

Yes, cron is required for sending email and populating the search index. If your hosting package truly doesn't support cron jobs you have two options: get another host (I'm serious)
use poormanscron (not recommended, as it only works for the smallest sites)
 
Suggestion: set up cron

    Installed poormanscron, a module that emulates cron.

    In /admin/messaging/notifications

    • Ticked 'Notify user of won postings' i
    • Unticked 'Enable debugging'
    • Set everything to 'immediately
    • (optional) 'Logging' set to 16 weeks
