Hello, I encountered a bug in 2.6.13 and I serached the forum for mail, got 7 pages and read though it all, but I do not think my problem was visible there!

Note, I run my forum on virtual host.

In the Admin Panel Global settings, in the field:
Notify From: I have an email adress that looks like this:
lastname(dot)name(at)email(dot)com

When the forum sends a mail to a user it will appear like this to them:

Quote:

From: lastname(at)physical(dot)host(dot)com

To view unread replies go to http://www.virtualhost.org/etcetc

If you do not wish to receive further notifications about replies in this topic, please go here: http://www.virtualhost.org/etcetcetc


If I press "Reply" to that mail, I will see the following adresses in the "TO: field":
lastname(at)physical(dot)host(dot)com, name(at)email(dot)com

So, it appears that since the format of my mail is lastname(dot)name(at)email(dot)com there is a bug that prevents the forum to understand that email format (with a . before the @)


Any pointers to the file where I can fix this problem?

Are you using SMTP mail wrapper in the forum or regular e-mail settings?

If you are using the regular settings, the the fault is not with FUDforum, it simply passed the provided value to the PHP's mail() via the header parameter as part of the Reply-To mail header.

Oh, so if I understand correctly, when FUDforum passes the email adress lastname(dot)firstname(at)mail(dot)com with the phpmail() function an error occurs when phpmail() writes the information to the header and splits it up into two parts due to the "out of standard" format of the user (lastname.firstname) ?

So I can assume that i cannot use the PHPmail function with an email adress such as this?

not phpmail() but PHP's mail() function, which is a native PHP function for sending out e-mail. That function is perfectly happy with any valid e-mail address including lastname(dot)firstname(at)mail(dot)com, at least on all the systems I've tested it on.

I don't know, but it certainly does not sound like a FUDforum problem.

Ok, thank you so much for your time Ilia.

On a sidenote, eventhough you never give "straight answers" (which you shouldnt). FUDforum has the fastest and best support of all the "free" softwares I have ever used. You are the champ =) <3<3
