So I just did my test bracket and got this error message back…any ideas?
The following recipient(s) could not be reached:
Error Type: SMTP
Remote server (126.96.36.199) issued an error.
sent: MAIL FROM:<<email@example.com>
Remote server replied: 555 5.5.2 Syntax error. 42si10223852qyk.19
Pretty sure I had this problem last year also, and just ended up manually sending confirmations to entrants..
Error Type: SMTP
Remote server (188.8.131.52) issued an error.
hMailServer sent: MAIL FROM:<<firstname.lastname@example.org>
Remote server replied: 550 5.1.0 <<email@example.com> missing or malformed local part
So I think it is in this code…
mail($email, "I have received your bracket","This is an automated email. If you receive this, I have your submission. Thanks for playing! -$meta[name]\n\n".$body, "From: <$adminEmail>");
that variable is defined as
$email = $_POST['e-mail'];
I am reaching….
Don't have an exact answer for you, but doing a web search brought up the following doc that may be useful, especially on page 16 has your error:
Other threads suggest its an issue with sending to Gmail accts.
seems to happen on google, hotmail, aol…yahoo appears to work
The problem is in the way the email is constructed.
The from address is set as <firstname.lastname@example.org
It needs to have that < removed…any help?
Changing the line mentioned to the following should work:
mail($email, "I have received your bracket","This is an automated email. If you receive this, I have your submission. Thanks for playing! -$meta\n\n".$body, "From: $adminEmail");
Just finished loading ver 184.108.40.206 and tested and this bug is still there…
bracket.php is where it needs to be changed.
