can any one help me out with this ?
What’s your site title in the settings? Does it contain any non-standard characters? Set a different title made up of plain ASCII characters (latin alphabet) as the email sender field in the email site title setting and send yourself a test mail (through Discourse, not via the command line script).
Now i changed it to
GreedGamer Gaming Community
Without " : "
@neil I would like protection for this implemented on the email side (strip the problem chars). This is support requests waiting to happen.
I can’t find a readable spec on what characters are allowed in that part of the from and reply-to fields. It’s probably in the RFC doc, but I can’t parse it. So far it has been the colon
: causing the problem, so I’ll start by stripping that and a few other obvious ones.
