* Feature request - Need to compensate for bad SMTP from addresses

Reported by dleffler | February 14th, 2013 @ 04:55 PM | in 2.2.0alpha3 (closed)

If the STMP from address is NOT a valid email address (like web@localhost), the mailing will fail. We now create a proper default address, HOWEVER sites installed from previous versions might have a bad address.

The fix is to either:

  • parse and fix their /conf/config.php file with an upgrade script
  • or more universally, add a quick routine in our expMail->addFrom() method to check and correct it (add a .org to the address if it doesn't contain a dot) and change the two mailer->setFrom() calls to use our addFrom() method.
