Email errors - Started yesterday

I enabled reply via email and this morning my sent box contains a TON of the following email:

locl.ca forums admin@locl.ca

5:17 PM (17 hours ago)

to me

We’re sorry, but your email message to [“admin@locl.ca”] (titled [locl.ca forums] Email issue – Unknown To: Address) didn’t work.

None of the destination addresses are recognized. Please make sure that the site address is in the To: line (not Cc: or Bcc:), and that you are sending to the correct email address provided by staff.

Sounds like you created a circular loop back condition where email rejection email notifications are going to the same email address that is used to post replies via email. This is A Bad Idea and will cause serious problems.

So I need to seperate my replies email from my site notification (admin) email. Got it.

Thank you I will do that immediately.


(Rod James) #4

fixed that. Thanks Jeff!

There should be a validator that prevents such loops. Does it still work?


(Régis Hanol) #6

Just checked on try and the validation still works.


(Rod James) #7

do I need to rebuild the container after I change that address?
