Description

When registering a new Forum account on https://www.uthgard.net/forum you can create the account, but after clicking on "Register" after typing in the account information you will redirected to a "404" Page.
After that if you go back to the Forum you will see a message which says
"Could not instantiate mail function"
and "
Your account has been created and an activation link has been sent to the e-mail address you entered. Note that you must activate the account by clicking on the activation link when you get the e-mail before you can login."

It seems like the account is created, but the Forum can not send the activation mail.

Reproduction Steps

1. Go to https://www.uthgard.net/forum
2. Click on "Create an account" to create an Forum account
3. Fill in the neccessary Informations of the Form to create a new account
4. Click on Register

Intended Behavior

It seems like there is a problem with the given mail address. Either way it is not allowed to send mails or it can not send mails, because the mail server is down.
The bug Fixing depends on where the error is and is not completely tellable form the User side.
